UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE 
BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

Thursday, February 22, 1990; 9:00 a.m. 

Chancellor's Conference Room 

University of Massachusetts 

Boston, Massachusetts 

Trustees and Trustee Staff: Trustee Oakes, Chair; Trustees Baker, Bowman, DiCara, Doherty, Foley, 
Huang, Kruczek, Mahoney, Nakajima, O'Leary, Reed and Rooney; Mrs. Fontaine, Administrative 
Secretary 

Trustees Absent: Trustees Carlin, Haynes, Huguenin, McBay, Teixeira, and Zervas 

University Administration: President Knapp, Vice Presidents Lenhardt and Smith, Mr. Searson and 
Mr. Tribble 

UM/Amherst: Chancellor Duffey, Provost O'Brien, Professor May, Faculty Representative 

UM/Boston: Chancellor Penney, Provost Zompa, Professor Quitt, Professor Horton, Professor 
Bluestone and Professor Hogarty, Faculty Representative 

UM/Worcester: Chancellor Laster, Dr. Cooke, Faculty Representative 

Trustee Oakes, Chair, called the meeting to order at 9:16 a.m. The first item on the agenda 
was Consideration of the Minutes of prior meetings of the Board. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the minutes of the November 9 and December 

6, 1989 meetings of the Board of Trustees. 

President Knapp began his report by commenting on his recent visit to Japan and Korea 
where he participated in the signing ceremony of a sister-state agreement between Massachusetts 
and Hokkaido and met with alumni and other officials interested in the potential expansion of 
international exchange agreements. 

Reporting on the current fiscal situation, he noted recent legislation which has serious 
consequences for the University - the mid-year increase in out-of-state tuition and provisions for the 
University to pay fringe benefits for all trust funded employees. He also reported on the Governor's 
budget recommendation for FY'91. The proposed total budget for all public higher education is 
$642.4 million dollars, an overall decrease of 7.5 percent from the current level of spending. 

In concluding his report, he announced with mixed emotions his decision to step down as 
President of the University of Massachusetts on March 16, 1990 (a copy of President Knapp s 
statement to the Board of Trustees is attached to the minutes). 

Chair Oakes thanked the President for his leadership in very difficult times and called on 
Trustee DiCara who proposed the following resolution. Trustee Huang commented further that 
David Knapp had shepherded the University of Massachusetts at Worcester from a fledgling 
campus to a renowned Medical Center, provided oversight for the Boston campus' academic quality 
and managerial accountability, attracted and maintained top-notch administrators to the 
University's campuses, so much so that Amherst campus, the flagship campus now provides 
leadership during these critical times. Lastly, President Knapp has taken seriously the education 
of his trustees so that they are not mere political appointees but have developed loyalty to the 



University and that they understand their responsibilities as stewards of the premier public 
educational institution in Massachusetts. All this has been done at a time when public service 
exposes an individual to critical surveillance and journalistic sniping and he has done it with 
professionalism. 

It was moved, seconded and 

RESOLVED: WHEREAS, David Knapp who has served as 
President of the University of Massachusetts since 
1978, has announced to the Board of Trustees that 
he will relinquish that position on March 16th, 
and 

WHEREAS, President Knapp has been in the 
forefront of public higher education in New 
Hampshire and as Provost at Cornell before 
coming back to Massachusetts, and 

WHEREAS, his tenure as President of the 
University of Massachusetts has provided him 
with an opportunity to put into practice the skills 
he has studied as a political scientist perhaps 
more often than he may have preferred, and 

WHEREAS, during his watch the University has 
grown and prospered, thousands of highly 
qualified faculty and staff have been hired and 
tens of thousands of students have graduated, and 

WHEREAS, he has recruited to each campus men 
and women of vision to occupy positions of 
leadership, and 

WHEREAS, his departure will provide him with 
more of an opportunity to spend time with his 
wife Rita, his sons Eric and Karl and to read, 
work and teach, free of administrative burdens, 
and 

WHEREAS, each of us who has been honored to 
serve as a Trustee during his tenure is the better 
for the friendship of this quiet scholar 

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the 
Board of Trustees of the University of 
Massachusetts, in a meeting assembled this 
twenty-second day of February, 1990 does hereby 
extend its thanks to David Knapp for his 
productive stewardship and 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that we wish him 
good health and peace of mind for many years to 
come. 



Chair Oakes then indicated that the Board had been giving serious consideration to the 
overall structure of the University and during these difficult times from an economic and fiscal point 
of view the Board has been reviewing ways it can reduce the administrative expense to the 
University. To that end, the Board suggested the consolidation of two positions, that of Chancellor 
of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and President of the University of Massachusetts 
and that Joseph Duffey be appointed. The new president is asked to review the functions being 
carried out in the President's Office with an eye toward consolidating those functions on to the 
campuses, where appropriate. Therefore creating operating efficiencies for the University. He 
added that it is extremely clear to all trustees that a President's Office be maintained and remain 
in Boston but that some of the functions might be better performed on the campuses and that some 
might be eliminated. 

The Chair then recognized Susan Horton, Chair of the University of Massachusetts Futures 
Committee, Martin Quitt, Chair of the Faculty Council, and Professor Barry Bluestone all from the 
Boston campus. It was suggested that not all functions be moved to the Amherst campus and the 
Board consider a rotating Presidency. 

Chair Oakes responded that a single President was necessary because the University needs a 
strong leader. Other trustees also assured the Boston campus faculty of their commitment to the 
campus. It was then moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To accept the resignation of David C. Knapp as President 

of the University of Massachusetts effective March 16, 
1990; to appoint Dr. Knapp as Ralph Waldo Emerson 
Professor of the University and P-Pofesse^r- Emeritus 
effective March 17, 1990, with previous tenure in the 
University continuing in this position; and further, to 
direct the next President/Chancellor to determine the 
terms and conditions of service in such position in 
consultation with the Chair of the Board of Trustees.

Lincoln Endowment Fund to support the position of Ralph 
Waldo Emerson Professor of the University.

responsibilities, to establish for the position of 
President/Chancellor the salary of $130,000 per annum 
and, further, to direct the Chair of the Board of Trustees 
to determine the terms and conditions of this 
appointment after consultation with members of the

STATEMENT TO THE 
BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

DAVID C. KNAPP 

PRESIDENT 

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

FEBRUARY 22, 1990 



It is with mixed emotions that I wish to inform the 
Board of my decision to step down as President of the 
University on March 16, 1990. By that date I will have 
served as President for eleven and a half years. As many 
of you know, I have long believed that ten years is the 
optimal time period for a University presidency and I had 
first indicated my desire to leave this post more than a 
year ago. We agreed then to extend my term in the hope 
that we would see the University through the 
Commonwealth's fiscal difficulties. Unfortunately that 
crisis shows no signs of resolution and there seems no 
point in further delay. 

I have chosen a short period before the effective 
date of my departure to avoid the pitfalls of being a lame 
duck. In the current environment, the University can ill 
afford a long transition and experience seems to indicate 
how ineffectual leadership can become in such periods. 






-2- 



Despite recent setbacks, the University is a much 
stronger institution today than when I arrived in 1978. 
All those associated with the University can look upon the 
past decade with pride in its accomplishments, including: 

First , the expansion of the University's functions 
establishing it as a contemporary land-grant research 
institution. This includes the development of public 
service activities such as the Massachusetts 
Institute for Social and Economic Research (MISER), 
the McCormack Institute, the Math, English, Science 
Teacher Education Program (MESTEP), City Lights and 
the Healey Public Service grants; the establishment 
of doctoral education opportunities in biomedical and 
environmental sciences; the dramatic expansion of 
corporate and federal support for research. 

Second , pioneering efforts in industry-university 
partnerships especially in science and engineering at 
Amherst and the development of corporate relations 
and patent policies to guide the University in these 
areas . 



-3- 



Third , the initial steps in building private support 
marked by the first million dollar gifts at Amherst 
and Worcester, stepped up annual giving at Amherst 
and Trustee support marked by the gifts of Andy 
Knowles and Paul Robsham. 

i 

Fourth , pioneering in the development of modern 
computerized management information systems and the 
design and installation of a state of the art 
telecommunications system. 

Fifth , an enhanced academic reputation evidenced by 
the quality of our undergraduate applications, the 
academic achievements of the student body and our 
ability to attract faculty of the highest quality. 

Sixth , an expanding network of international 
involvement including some of the earliest 
initiatives with China and the Soviet Union. 



-4- 



Seventh , careful attention to building a University 
system with complementary parts, including a Boston 
campus that has matured as an urban institution 
meeting the critical needs of its unique 
constituencies; a campus in Worcester that has come 
of age as one of the most dynamic academic health 
centers in the country/ one which will play a vital 
role in efforts to stimulate research and training in 
biotechnology and other health related fields; and, 
finally, an Amherst campus which has solidified its 
position as a comprehensive university with national 
recognition and international stature. 

While I would like to believe that my administration 
played some part in these advances, real responsibility 
for the success we have achieved lies with the talented 
men and women who make up the University's faculty, with 
the able leadership of the campuses, and with the 
dedicated support personnel whose efforts are so essential 
to the functioning of the institution. 

As you realize I have devoted an inordinate amount of 
attention, time and energy to preserving the University 
system over the past decade. I have done so, not to 



-5- 



sustain my office or job, but to keep in place a three 
campus system, conceived in 1970, which I believe benefits 
the Commonwealth and each of the campuses. I know that 
you as Trustees are committed to that system, and I 
believe that you, as a Board, should have the independent 
authority appropriate for governing a distinctive billion 
dollar university enterprise. 

!' 

It would, of course, be unrealistic not to 
acknowledge the turmoil in which the University finds 
itself at present. The continuing erosion of state 
support, compounded by paralysis in public policy, is 
having a detrimental effect on our ability to maintain 
access and excellence. The campuses have demonstrated 
remarkable resilience in trying to maintain academic 
programs in the face of chronic budget problems. But 
Universities are fragile institutions, and talent and 
imagination are not constrained by state boundaries. The 
academic marketplace in which the University competes is 
international in scope and institutional commitments are 
being strained to the breaking point. 

Of most concern is the continuing transfer of 
responsibility for the financial support of public higher 
education from the Commonwealth to students and their 






-6- 



families, the inadequate resources for academic support 
functions (libraries, equipment, maintenance), and the 
inability to break the two decade long deadlock on badly 
needed new facilities on all three campuses. I have to 
say in all candor that the advent of the often heralded 
Regents system has in no way ameliorated these most 
fundamental problems affecting not 'only the University, 
but public higher education in general. ? 

Perhaps even more worrisome than these deficiencies 
is the continued erosion of institutional responsibility. 
All parties proclaim their commitment to decentralized 
administration and campus decision-making, yet every 
action appears to have the opposite effect. At a time 
when centralized state planning and management faces 
world-wide repudiation, Massachusetts seems determined to 
recreate the worst forms of bureaucratic malaise. 
Creativity cannot be stimulated by regulations and 
directives . 

For all its supposed cosmopolitanism, Massachusetts, 
in its approach to the governance of higher education, is 
a provincial state - a condition which continues to affect 
the University adversely. Neither the political 
leadership, nor the media which seemingly guide the 
policy-making process, appear capable of thinking of 



-7- 



publicly supported colleges and universities as academic 
institutions of substance. Instead, their focus remains 
steadfastly on the politics of higher education - and the 
more local they can make the issues the happier they 
seem. Statesmanship in shaping higher education policy 
eludes state officials and the press alike. 

This University, like all public, land-grant 
institutions, is dedicated to the proposition that 
knowledge can and should serve the public interest. Its 
potential for leadership among public universities has 
been enhanced during the past decade and I urge the 
Trustees not to falter in pursuit of excellence during our 
current malaise. 



I want to close by thanking the Trustees for your 
support in good times and bad. It has been an honor to 
serve as President of this institution. I also want to 
express my appreciation to the faculty and campus 
leadership for their support in our mutual endeavors. 



Finally, I want to thank the members of my staff who 
have labored long and hard in the service of the 
University. I believe that the transition arrangements 
which the Board will adopt today will enable the 



-8- 



institution to weather the current period of uncertainty 
and allow it to resume its progress in the near future. I 
look forward to continuing my contribution to that effort 
in a different form.

American Foresters at their 1990 annual winter meeting. Also, the Tutoring Enrichment Assistance 
Models for Schools (TEAMS) Project, which trains University undergraduates to tutor language and 
cultural minority students in local public schools, has been awarded a $49,000 grant from the U.S. 
Department of Education's Student Literacy Corps Program. Created by the Division of Continuing 
Education and supported by the School of Education, TEAMS has supplied 225 tutors and more than 
10,000 hours of assistance to students in Amherst, Northampton, Holyoke, Chicopee, Greenfield and 
Easthampton. In addition, the Northeast regional office of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service 
became the first organization to join the University Partners program with the signing of a 
cooperative agreement March 30. The program is designed to offer members access to the 
University's educational, cultural and research resources. 

Chancellor Penney reported on the recent conference held on the Boston campus on March 3rd 
on Teaching and Learning about Differences. She also reported on upcoming events and festivities 
which will be held on campus to celebrate Earth Day. Finally, she reported on a recent incident 
where two campus police officers participated in a rescue of four men and a boy who were tossed into 
the waters of Dorchester Bay. She invited officers Jeremiah Ahern and Robert Ward to join her, 
President Duffey and Chair Oakes who presented them with an official citation to honor their 
heroics. 

The Board then listened to a delegation of representatives of students and union members 
who spoke about the proposed restructuring plan at the University of Massachusetts at Boston. 
Those who addressed the Board were Tom Goodkind, local 509; Julie McCusker, Local 285; Patricia 
Payne, FSU; Tracey Brown and Darlene J. Quarles, students. After their remarks, Trustee Rooney 
asked Chancellor Penney to sit down with him and this group. 

The next item on the agenda was Reports of Standing Committees. In the absence of Trustee 
Reed, Associate Vice President Tribble reported that the Affirmative Action Committee met on 
March 15th and received reports on three areas: the Affirmative Action Software Package, the 
Utilization of Women and Minorities at Boston and Worcester, and the implementation of the

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve an increase in need based tuition waivers from $92,120 to $138,844 

at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. (Doc. T90-027, T86-039,

The next item on the agenda was a change in the name and purpose of the Medical 
Education Trust Fund at the Worcester campus. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve a revised Statement of Trust for the Medical Education Trust Fund 
at the University of Massachusetts at Worcester by deleting paragraph 2 of 
the Board vote of February 2, 1977 and inserting in place thereof "This self- 
supporting trust fund will fund direct administrative service costs of the 
Continuing Medical Education Office and other educational expenses as they 
relate to the mission of the Medical Center." (Doc. T77-066B) 

The Board then considered the establishment of the Richard W. Bauer Scholarship Fund at 
the A.mherst campus. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To establish the Richard W. Bauer Scholarship Fund at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst subject to the following 
provisions: that the principal of the fund is to be invested and the

majoring in History. The awards will be made by a committee 
composed of the Chairman and two other members of the History 
Department. One member is to be designated by the Chairman of the 
History Department and one by the Dean of Faculty. Unused income 
remaining after annual awards have been made will be added to the 
principal of the fund. (Doc. T90-029) 

Trustee Haynes also reported that Chancellor Laster and Mr. Van Etten made a presentation 
concerning the need to pursue alternative financing through HEFA to fund the construction of the 
Ambulatory Care building. The Committee will be presented with additional information at the 
June meeting for action. 

The Committee then recommended that the following Audits be approved. It was moved, 
seconded and 



and, 



VOTED : To accept the following audits: 

WFCR-FM and Friends of WFCR, Inc. (Doc. T89-111) 
Management Response 

Trust Fund Interest Allocations - Follow-up Report

of Trustees on December 9, 1981 by adding the words "with the exception of 
compensation paid to Athletic Coaches engaged in Summer Sports Camps 
Programs" to Section 1(d) as indicated below: 

(d) Total compensation for all such services with the exception of compensation 
paid to Athletic Coaches engaged in Summer Sports Camps Programs may not 
exceed, in a given calendar year, an amount greater than 12 percent of the staff 
member's then current base annual salary, and may be administered at rates 
established by existing compensation schedules such as that, for instances, used 
by the Division of Continuing Education, or at rates based on existing 
compensation for comparable service and required expertise, provided it can be 
determined that such additional duties do not fall within the scope of duties 
and responsibilities assigned said staff member in his/her official job 
description. Should it be determined that the additional services fall within 
the scope of duties and responsibilities assigned in the official job description, 
then no additional compensation will be paid. 

The next item, Trustee Reserve Allocation, had been discussed at a special meeting of the 
Executive Committee on March 20th. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To authorize the President to appropriate to the Chancellor of the University 

of Massachusetts at Boston a sum up to $850,000 from FY 1991 Trustee Reserve 
Funds, in the event a retrenchment of faculty in the Physical Education and 
Fitness Program becomes necessary, pursuant to Article 22.4 of the Faculty 
Collective Bargaining Agreement with the Massachusetts Society of 
Professors/Faculty Staff Union/MTA/NEA. 



Then discussed was the Graduate Student Employees request for union recognition. The 
recommendation of the Executive Committee was moved, and seconded. There then ensued a lengthy 
discussion with Trustee Haynes indicating specific concerns. The first focusing on including in the 
motion that the election conclude before the end of the semester. He then moved to amend the 
motion by inserting in #2 the words "The University administration and GEO will attempt to 
accomplish this to allow an election by the end of the spring semester 1990." It was moved, 
seconded and the amendment was defeated. Trustee Haynes voted for the motion. Trustee 
Nakajima is recorded as present. 

Trustee Haynes then moved to amend the motion by striking from #3 the words "of those 
graduate students deemed eligible to vote". The amendment was defeated. Trustees Haynes, 
Nakajima and Teixeira voted for the motion. Trustee Foley is recorded as present. 

The motion originally presented was then 

VOTED : To authorize the Chancellor of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst to 

continue discussions with the Board of Regents and the Office of Employee 
Relations (Secretary of Administration and Finance) regarding an appropriate 
procedure by which some graduate employees (teaching assistants and other 
classifications as may be deemed appropriate by the campus administration) 
may participate in an election concerning their desire to be represented by some 
form of union organization for the purposes of collective bargaining. 

If the campus administration, the Board of Regents, and the Office of 
Employee Relations reach the conclusion that such an election is appropriate, 
we believe the best and most appropriate method of determining the question 
of union representation is for graduate student employees to file an appropriate 
petition at the Massachusetts Labor Relations Commission, which will rule on 
the issue. Should the graduate student employees choose not to do so, then the 
Chancellor is authorized to arrange for such an election with the following 
stipulations: 

1. The election will be conducted by an appropriate neutral party or 
organization with experience in such matters. 

2. The election will provide ample time for thorough discussion by all parties 
of the issues and consequences of unionization of graduate student employees. 

3. The election will be by ballots distributed to all graduate student 
employees deemed eligible by the campus administration to participate in the 
election, with the outcome of the election requiring a vote of a majority of 
those graduate students deemed eligible to vote. 

4. Appropriate opportunity to secure listing on the ballot will be available to 
any organization that represents graduate student employees. 

5. Eligible graduate student employees will have the option of selecting a 
form of representation not involving collective bargaining. 



8 



6. It is understood that bargaining with any organization which has secured 
a majority vote of those graduate student employees deemed eligible to vote 
will be limited to issues related to their status as employees under G. L. c. 
150E, and will explicitly exclude all matters pertaining to their status as 
students, including all matters of academic policy. 

If, after consultation with the Board of Regents and the Office of Employee 
Relations, such an election is held, and if a majority of graduate student 
employees deemed eligible to vote choose a representative for the purpose of 
collective bargaining, the Board of Trustees will recommend to the Board of 
Regents that recognition be granted to such representative, subject to the laws 
and regulations of the Commonwealth, including without limitation, G. L. c. 
15A, c. 75, and c. 150E. It is understood that recognition will be subject to and 
in accordance with any determination made by the Massachusetts Labor 
Relations Commission regarding the legal status of the bargaining 
relationship. 

Trustees Doherty, Haynes and Mahoney are recorded as opposed. 

Chair Oakes then called for a motion to go into Executive Session to discuss Honorary 
Degrees. The time was 11:05 a.m. and it was moved, seconded and 



VOTED:

Chair Oakes voted for the motion as did Trustees Baker, Bowman, Doherty, Foley, Haynes, 
Huang, Kruczek, Mahoney, Nakajima, Rooney and Teixeira.

session and to instruct the Chancellors to proceed with the necessary 
arrangements.

Chair Oakes called the meeting to order at 9:00 a.m. The first item on the agenda was 
Consideration of the Minutes of the prior meeting of the Board. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the minutes of the April 4, 1990 meeting of the Board 
of Trustees. 

Chair Oakes then complimented the Chancellors on the successful Commencement 
Exercises. 

President Duffey then asked the Chancellors and Provost O'Brien to report on campus 
activities. 

Provost O'Brien reported that the following faculty at the Amherst campus have been 
cited for distinguished awards. Richard Stein, professor of chemistry, was one of sixty new 
members elected to the National Academy of Sciences. Phillip Westmoreland, assistant 
professor of chemical engineering has been named a Presidential Young Investigator by the 
National Science Foundation. He will receive up to $100,000 in federal and private 
matching funds per year for five years to support his research on quantum theories of high 
temperature kinetic systems. Bernard W. Bell, english professor, has received the College 
Language Association's 1989 Distinguished Scholarship Award for his book "The Afro- 
American Novel and its Tradition". Daphne Patai, professor of Women's Studies and 
Portuguese, has been selected a 1990-91 fellow of the National Humanities Center in North 
Carolina, where she will spend a year in residence conducting research and writing her 
project, "Gendermania: Male and Female Power in Utopian Fiction." Public Health 
professor Ted Chen was one of five people honored in April by the Government of Thailand 
for his work to stop tobacco exports to Asian countries. Paul J. Godfrey of the Water 
Resources Research Center has won a National Environmental Achievement Award for his 
work guiding the Acid Rain Monitoring project in Massachusetts and Joseph S. Larson, 
director of the Environmental Institute and professor of Forestry and Wildlife Management, 
won a 1990 Chevron Conservation Award for his "pioneering efforts in protecting and 
enhancing the environment. 



Chancellor Penney began her report by thanking the trustees for attending the 
Commencement Exercises. She too cited faculty and staff members who have gained national 
recognition for the distinction of their work. Professor Richard Lyons of the English 
Department was awarded the prize for the best article of the year appearing in the journal 
American Literature . Padriag O'Malley, of the McCormack Institute, has published the 
widely acclaimed book on the Irish Hunger strikes led by Bobby Sands. She also 
distributed two publications from the McCormack Institute, one a report on the 
Massachusetts economy "after the miracle" and the other the most recent issue of the New 
England Journal of Public Policy, which concentrates on the economic employment of women. 
She also announced that the campus was one of the 28 institutions nationally to receive the 
Jacob Javits Talented and Gifted Program Grant, selected from among 238 submitted 
proposals. The award is a multi-year grant of more than $1 million and will support the 
campus' work with talented and gifted inner city students and the schools they attend. 

She also spoke about the consultative process which occurred and recommendations 
concerning changes on the Boston campus to strengthen the academic and administrative 
programs while at the same time build a foundation for long-term operations in spite of 
substantially reduced state allocations. In putting this process of review and change in 
motion, the overall goal was the reaffirmation of the mission of the Boston campus in terms 
which would fit the economic realities and to allow the campus to continue to achieve 
distinction as Massachusetts' urban public university in the 1990's. In the process of 
consultation and discussion, the goals have been refined. First, to strengthen and expand the 
university's engagement in research, including continued development of doctoral programs. 
Second, to sustain and focus the commitment to an urban agenda. Third, to improve the 
retention of undergraduate students particularly among non-traditional and historically 
under-served populations. Finally, to improve collaboration across program and college lines 
in teaching and research. She said the process of discussion and review is coming to 
conclusion, and the outcome will be several recommendations for change in the nature or 
organization of programs and services. Some of these changes continue to depend on the 
budget and will be presented to the Board in August when the budget is known. She then 
spoke to the recommendation before the Committee to establish a Graduate College of 
Education and the transfer of responsibility for undergraduate teacher preparation to the 
College of Arts and Sciences. These changes will give the campus the organization and the 
momentum to meet the major challenges of the coming decade in an area of central 
importance to the university. Two proposals still under very active consideration is the 
abolition of the program in Physical Education and Fitness. Extensive discussion of this 
matter on the campus has occurred and many individuals and groups have been consulted 
about this step. While a final decision has not been made, a satisfactory alternative has 
not been found to abolishing this program if the state allocation is cut as much as is 
expected. She indicated that the seriousness of such a step is so great that she wishes to be 
fully certain about the budget before asking the Board to take such a vote. If it is indeed 
necessary to do so, Board action at the August meeting would fulfill all legal and procedural 
requirements. A second matter has moved into the planning stages on the campus and also 
will come before the Board during the coming academic year, the establishment of a College 
of Natural Sciences. A special task force on the campus which reviewed the issue 
recommended that additional planning be completed before implementation of the new 
college and Provost Zompa has concurred in the recommendation. He plans to appoint an 
Associate Provost with the specific responsibility to coordinate planning for the College of 
Natural Sciences. She also reported the outcome of two matters which do not require Board 
approval but which have been under discussion on the campus. The first is the proposed 
move of the College of Public and Community Service. She indicated she was satisfied that 
new measurers which grew out of the consultative process will meet the academic concerns, 
and that the downtown location of CPCS remains sufficiently important that it should be 
continued at 250 Stuart Street, though budget constraints will require significant reduction of 
services there as everywhere in the university. A second plan which has been under 
consideration is the establishment of a university-wide advising center, drawn from present 



advising and counseling services now scattered throughout the campus. Implementation of 
this will begin this summer. 

In addition to reporting about on-going activities at the Medical Center, Chancellor 
Laster reported on recent awards to faculty members in recognition of their work. Dr. Glenys 
A. Hamilton, associate professor in the Graduate School of Nursing, was awarded the 
Fulbright-Hays scholarship for the 1990-1991 academic year. She will conduct nursing 
research in Norway, at the University of Oslo's Institute of Nursing Science. Dr. Mani 
Menon, professor of surgery and physiology and chair of the Division of Urological and 
Transplantation Surgery, has been elected to receive the American Urologic Association's 
prestigious "Gold Cystoscope Award," which goes to the urologist regarded as having made 
the greatest contribution to the field within 10 years of completing formal training. The 
American Urologic Association also has recognized Dr. Sanjaya Kumar, a urology resident. 
He has won the Grayson Carroll Essay Contest for laboratory research. The award is the 
highest honor that a urology resident can achieve. Dr. Lawrence K. L. Jung, an assistant 
professor of pediatrics, has been awarded a three-year, $330,000 grant from the National 
Institute of Health to further the understanding of how the immune system works. 

He announced that the Center for Stone Disease at the Medical Center is developing a 
full spectrum of options for treatment and surgery in biliary disease. Last month, Dr. Philip 
Caushaj, assistant professor of surgery and chief of surgical endoscopy, become the first 
surgeon in Worcester, and one of just a few in New England, to perform a revolutionary new 
procedure to remove a patient's gallbladder. The surgery, known as a "laparoscopic 
cholecystectomy," allows a surgeon to remove the gallbladder using a laparoscope. 

Chancellor Laster also reported that a newly released book Full Catastrophe Living by 
stress reduction expert Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn has been lauded by experts in the field for its 
readable combination of scientific fact, philosophy, personal stories, case vignettes and 
practical instruction. 

Concluding his report, he introduced four individuals who have gone beyond their 
positions at the Medical Center to help the community and beyond. Javier Palevi Berrios, 
just completed his first year at the Medical School, and served as Chairman of the Medical 
Center's first annual Latino Awareness Month held in April. Linda M. Conover is a nurse in 
the medical-surgical unit at the Hospital and spoke about her work with the poor in 
Appalachia, Haiti, Equador and India. Lori Fantry, M.D., is an assistant professor of 
family and community medicine at the Medical Center and the lone full-time physician in 
the Homeless Outreach and Advocacy Project in Worcester. Devin McManus, who received 
his M.D. on June 3rd from the Medical School and will begin his residency in medicine at 
UMCC, spoke about creating medical programs such as Serving the Underserved that help 
the poor. 

The next item on the agenda was Reports of Standing Committees . In the absence of 
Trustee Reed, Trustee DiCara reported the Committee met on Tuesday, May 8th and heard 
campus report on affirmative action goals. One of the major issues facing the campuses is 
recruiting and retaining personnel. 

Trustee Baker gave the report of the University Relations and Development Committee 
highlighting the progress of G/R Public Relations. 

Trustee Zervas reported for the Committee on Academic and Student Affairs. She

"no strings" $270,000 grant by the John and Catherine MacArthur Foundation. Also, that the Public

Playhouse" series. He also reported that plans were recently unveiled by Mechanical Engineering 
Professor J. Edward Sunderland for a thermal storage project to heat the planned Mullins 
Convocation Center as well as part of Boyden Gymnasium. Under a $230,000 U.S. Department 
Energy grant, Professor Sunderland and senior research associate Dwayne Breger designed a solar 
collection and storage facility that could save about 800 tons of coal per year or 150,000 gallons of 
oil. The $3 million project could pay for itself in six to seven years. 

He then spoke in detail about the campus reallocation process which the campus is utilizing to 
face the changing needs of the campus. 

Chancellor Penney started her report by speaking of summer enrollment and programs. During 
the summer, the campus had over 11,460 students who enrolled in undergraduate and graduate 
courses. In addition, she reported on three new initiatives: The American Studies Summer 
Institute's "The Cold War and the Communist World: Legacy and Transformation", a joint venture 
with the Kennedy Library; the English Language and Cultural Studies Program, involving forty 
students from Chukyo University, Japan; the Irish Studies Program, involving eleven of our 
undergraduate students who studied politics and economics in both Northern Ireland and the 
Republic of Ireland. The last program is a joint venture between UMass/Boston and Ireland's McGee 
College of the University of Ulster in the North and University College in the South.

Affairs, with the Library of Congress and the National Democratic Institute that is aimed at the 



development of an internal research service for members of the newly-elected Czechoslovakian 
Parliament. The Boston campus was the only academic institution invited to join the development 
team, which is in the early stages of discussion and planning. 

The campus also collaborated this summer with local headmasters and the Superintendent's 
office in organizing the Guaranteed Admissions Program for students enrolled at the University's 
partner high schools -- Jeremiah E. Burke, Dorchester, and South Boston. The program will 
guarantee admission for high school students completing the Regents' requirement of 16 academic 
units with at least a C average. 

Turning to fall enrollment, Chancellor Penney reported on the popularity of the graduate 
program, demonstrated by the fact that 1,600 people have applied, which is an 11% increase over 
last year. With regard to transfer students, the campus will admit about 500 fewer transfer students 
than the 2,335 targeted. In addition, the overall minority student population is 19.2%, which 
remains the highest percent of any four-year public institution in Massachusetts and New England.

Hemingway in our times, a $74,000 award from the Mayor's office to continue work on adult literacy 
training, and a $400,000 federal grant to the Bilingual Education Program to continue its work in 
bilingual education. 

She also reported on the graduate College of Education and said that considerable progress is 
being made to finalize the structure and academic organization of the college. 

Speaking on the establishment of the College of Sciences and Engineering, she indicated that 
the proposal has been widely discussed within the campus and that Dr. Chris Kibel has been 
appointed to lead the campus effort to revitalize the Sciences. As a major urban public University, 
she said the campus has a special role in offering quality programs in the Sciences at all levels.

University in terms of the changing nature and climate in Massachusetts. He noted that the 
last three months has been unprecedented for the nation. There is to the best of his 
knowledge no public or private institution that has had to confront the kind of instability 
that confronts the University, and it is for that reason the Board will need to hold a special

Community Development and Public Policy. Other recent awards include a $3 million dollar

in federal funding for the UM /Boston McNair Fellowship Program. 

In concluding her remarks, she spoke about the recent Convocation exercises and 
reported on scholarships given to students, Danielle Ngo, Laurie Rose, William Love and 
Alex Lee*. Also honored with the Chancellor's Distinguished Service Award were

presentations from Marc Kenen, representing the Graduate Students at the Amherst campus, 
Professors John Cole and Jane Giacobbe, Tom Shields, a student from the Boston campus and 
Trustee Angus McQuilken. 

Trustee Carlin commented that in these horrible times, his sense was that the pain, 
agony and suffering needs to be spread uniformly amongst the parents, students, vendors, and 
faculty and raised the concern that at Amherst and Boston this had not been done and that 
even though there has been attrition in the Faculty ranks they have been left unscathed. 
Expressing similar remarks, Trustee Haynes said the opportunity has to be presented to the 
workers at the campus to look at the accounts and present alternatives, noting that the 
response date was November 16th. He suggested tabling the matter until all parties had

$600 to $500 
$300 to 225

and deleting the last sentence and inserting in place thereof "Further, to authorize the

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE 
BOARD OF TRUSTEES 

Wednesday, December 5, 1990 

Trustees' Lounge 

250 Stuart Street 

Boston, Massachusetts 

Trustees and Trustee Staff : Chair Oakes; Trustees Baker, Canina, Carlin, DiCara, 
Doherty, Foley, Haynes, Huang, McBay, McQuilken, O'Leary, Teixeira, Walsh and Zervas; 
Mrs. Fontaine, Administrative Secretary 

Trustees Absent : Trustees Bowman, Huguenin, Mahoney and Reed 

University Administration : President Duffey; Vice President Lenhardt and Associate Vice 
President Tribble; General Counsel Searson 

UM/Amherst : Provost O'Brien; Vice Chancellor Page; Professor Kinney, Faculty 
Representative 

UM/Boston : Chancellor Penney; Provost Zompa; Professor Tager-Flusberg, Faculty 
Representative 

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Lazare; Dr. Cooke, Faculty Representative 

Chair Oakes called the meeting to order at 9:10 a.m. The first item on the agenda 
was the consideration of the minutes of the previous meeting of the Board. Without 
discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve the October 3 and October 31, 1990 

minutes of the meetings of the Board of Trustees. 

Chair Oakes then commented on two recent major University events, the David C. 
Knapp Scholarship Dinner held the previous evening and the November 14th Baseball 
Dinner with the Boston Red Sox. 

President Duffey then gave his report. He commented on the openness and good 
will on the part of the Governor-elect and about the new Governor's recent statements about 
public higher education with regard to the need for more fundraising. Secondly, the need for 
tuition to be adjusted and third his belief that the administration in public higher 
education is top heavy. 

President Duffey then shared his thoughts about each of these three areas, starting 
first with this administration. He spoke about the need of the role of the administration 
and the need for Trustees to support administrators. He suggested that to help the Governor 
understand this role he would suggest the University find a few individuals, one familiar 
with higher education and a businessman to perform an audit of each of our three campuses. 

Speaking about tuition, he indicated they could be adjusted more. The problem is 
what happens to those who cannot afford it and suggested that not all institutions are the 
same and the University needs more autonomy to address that question. There also needs to 
be assurances that as tuition or fees increase the monies will not be taken away through cuts 
in the state appropriation. 

He indicated the most important question was scholarship and assistance for those 
who cannot afford the tuition. He suggested the concept of publishing a contract that 



outlines students and parents responsibilities to contribute to tuition but that beyond, no one 
will be denied a university education for financial reasons. 

He then spoke about campus fundraising and that it is not a substitute to public 
support and in most great public universities, it provides the margin for the achievement of 
excellence. He then indicated a proposal which he would put before a few individuals to 
commit themselves to giving and raising together one and a half million dollars over the 
next five years. Those individuals would say to the Governor and Legislature that they 
would only do this if the state appropriations were made at the current level plus increases 
in the cost of living. If that commitment were broken all bets would be off. 

The Trustees then had a lengthy discussion about these areas. It concluded with 
the Chair asking the President to outline these steps in writing and give the Trustees a 
recommended action plan for the Board to help him implement those areas where there is 
agreement. 

There was also a discussion about University officials early on seeking out members 
of the new administrations transition team so they can begin to be oriented toward the 
University. 

The Board then heard Campus Reports from Chancellors Penney, Lazare and 
Provost O'Brien. 

The next item on the agenda was Reports of Standing Committees . Trustee Baker 
reported for the University Relations and Development Committee. At the last meeting, 
G/R Public Relations presented its final report regarding development efforts. The 
Committee also considered the Medical Center's proposal for development for FY91 and 
forwarded its recommendation for funding to the Budget and Financial Affairs Committee. 



and 



Trustee McBay recommended the following two motions. It was moved, seconded 



VOTED : To approve the December, 1990 undergraduate Graduation 

Lists of the University of Massachusetts at Boston, subject 
to the completion of all requirements as certified by the 
Registrar and, further, that any additional candidates, 
who upon completion of all requirements for graduation in 
December, 1990 as certified by the Registrar, be awarded 
the Degree of Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science. 

And further, to approve a change in the B.A. in Geography 
degree awarded to Mr. David Denis in June, 1990 to the B.S. 
degree in Geography. (Doc. T90-001E) 



And further, 



VOTED : To concur with the President in the award of tenure to 

Dr. Carolyn M. Callahan as Associate Professor of 
Accounting and Information Systems. (Doc. T90-093) 



She also commented that the Committee discussed the proposed elimination and 
reduction of various programs at the Amherst campus and concerns were raised about the 
potential disproportionate effect of those proposed changes on minority faculty and students. 

The Committee requested additional information regarding this issue. In addition, 
the Committee will now have as an agenda item, Student Trustee Reports. 



The Committee also discussed a proposal from the Amherst campus for a 
Comprehensive Dispute Resolution System. The proposal contained in it a recommendation 
that the Board's 1977 decision to eliminate the Legal Services Center litigation role be 
rescinded. The Committee discussed the proposal and encouraged the campus to establish 
the dispute resolution committee. 

The unresolved issues are the need to address a lack of coordination among the 
various offices that provide services to students and the lack of information available to 
students. The Committee will hear a progress report in February about these issues and 
asked that it be provided with information on the status of the existing offices, and will 
also meet with Counsel Searson regarding his concerns raised at the meeting. 

Trustee Carlin then reported for the Budget and Financial Affairs Committee. The 
first item on the agenda was to Request a Line of Credit of up to $1.2 million to the 
University of Massachusetts Foundation for the purpose of initiating construction of the 
Engineering Student Center. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To approve a line of credit of up to $1,200,000 to the 

University of Massachusetts Foundation, Inc. from the 
University cash management system for the purpose 
of initiating construction by the Spring, 1991 of the

five years with an option to review with an interest rate 
set at prime less 1%. Interest to be paid quarterly on the 
average balance outstanding during the period. (Doc. T90-095)

VOTED : To approve an allocation of funds from Trustee Reserve 

of $86,250 for FY91 development efforts at the University 
of Massachusetts at Worcester. (Doc. T89-059A) 

Trustee Carlin then indicated that the Committee recommended the following 
amendment to the Purchasing Policy . It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To amend the Purchasing Policy (Doc. T77-001A) by 

deleting item 14 (c) and substituting therefore the 
following: 

"Authority to enter into leases of real property, 
with specific Board of Trustee approval for periods 
exceeding one year, or for any renewal or extension 
which, combined with the original lease, shall exceed 
one year." 

The Board then considered an amendment to an October 31st vote which allowed 
the Boston and Amherst campuses to make use of surpluses in certain trust funds during the 

-3- 



spring semester of 1991 to mitigate the effects of the recent budget reduction. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED : Notwithstanding any other rule, regulation, or vote of the 

Board of Trustees to the contrary, the Chancellor of the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst and the Chancellor 
of the University of Massachusetts at Boston are hereby 
authorized to identify savings for Fiscal Year 1991 in trust 
fund accounts maintained for the Amherst and Boston 
campuses, exclusive of grants and contracts and other 
restricted trust fund accounts, which are attributable to 
budgeted but unexpended cost-of-living increases and to 
savings from temporary layoffs of trust funded employees; 
to withdraw said savings from revenues generated in such 
trust fund accounts in the Spring Semester, 1991; and to 
expend said savings for general campus operations, as the 
Chancellor shall determine, provided, however, that such

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE 
EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE 

Tuesday, April 3, 1990 

Thirteenth Floor Conference Room 

250 Stuart Street 

Boston, Massachusetts 



Committee and Committee Staff : Chair Oakes, Trustees Baker, Foley and Kruczek; Mrs. Fontaine, 
Administrative Secretary

University Administration : President Duffey, Vice Presidents Lenhardt and Smith, Associate Vice

UM/Amherst : Provost O'Brien, Mr. Leheny, Ernest May; Faculty Representative, Marc Kenen, 
Renee Heberle, Gerald McCauslin and Paul Nakaroshis; graduate students 

UM/Boston : Chancellor Penney, Richard Hogarty, Faculty Representative 

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Laster 

Guests : Joseph Ambash; Day, Berry & Howard 

Chair Oakes convened the meeting at 4:05 p.m. The first item on the agenda was the 
Hospital Management Board minutes. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the minutes of the 

January 24, 1990 Hospital Management Board minutes 
including the December 1989 unaudited financial 
statement. (Doc. T90-022) 

The next item was the appointment of the Vice Chair of the Hospital Management Board, 
who also serves as the Chair of the Joint Conference Committee of that Board. Trustee Foley was 
recommended and without further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board appoint Michael T. Foley 

as Vice Chair of the Hospital Management Board. (Doc. 
T90-023) 

President Duffey then gave the background of the next item, Non-Academic Professional 
Staff, which amends current policy to give the campus more flexibility. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board amend the additional 

compensation policy for professional non-academic staff 
as set forth in an attachment to Doc. T73-090A and as 
voted by the Board of Trustees on December 9, 1981 by 
adding the words "with the exception of compensation 



paid to Athletic Coaches engages in Summer Sports 
Campus Programs" to Section 1(d) as indicated below: 

(d) Total compensation for all such services with the 
exception of compensation paid to Athletic Coaches 
engages in Summer Sports Campus Programs may not 
exceed, in a given calendar year, an amount greater than 
12 percent of the staff member's then current base annual 
salary, and may be administered at rates established by 
existing compensation schedules such as that, for 
instance, used by the Division of Continuing Education, or 
at rates based on existing compensation for comparable 
service and required expertise, provided it can be 
determined that such additional duties do not fall 
within the scope of duties and responsibilities assigned 
said staff member in his/her official job description. 
Should it be determined that the additional services 
fall within the scope of duties and responsibilities 
assigned in the official job description, then no 
additional compensation will be paid. 

The Committee then discussed the Evaluation Procedures for the President and Chancellors. 
President Duffey indicated that there is a prescribed procedure for the evaluation of presidents 
adopted by the Board of Regents. Those procedures call for an evaluation after two years and that 
evaluation should be forwarded to the Board of Regents. He added that inherent in the University 
policy, which was carefully considered by former Trustee Barney Troy, are procedures the 
Chancellors should welcome. He suggested that current university policy be revised to be consistent 
with the Regents policy and there be language which would allow the Board to ask for this process 
in consultation with the President and Chancellor at some other point where its deemed 
appropriate. Trustee Foley suggested the need for a predictable evaluation as suggested which will 
also allow for an informal session each year where the objectives for the year and prospects for the 
forthcoming year might be discussed. It was agreed that an Ad Hoc Committee would be named to 
work with President Duffey. 

President Duffey then invited the Graduate Students from the Amherst campus to join the 
Trustees. He reminded the Committee that faculty, staff and administration are employees' of the 
Board of Regents not the University. He then gave the background of the graduate students request 
for union recognition. He indicated that the campus administration was approached late 
summer/early fall about the signing of an agreement which would recognize an organization of 
graduate student employees for the purposes of collective bargaining. He added that there was 
some discussion which the administration hoped would lead to the recognition of an indigenous 
group of graduate student employees by the administration for the purposes of discussing issues 
related to their employment. Those discussions resulted in a proposal that there be recognition of 
such an organization. That process was not formal collective bargaining and the GEO has continued 
to request recognition as a union for the purposes of collective bargaining. He outlined the steps 
utilized when public employees seek recognition as a union through the Labor Relations Commission. 
The GEO's request has been to by-pass that process and have the opportunity to choose an 
organization that would be recognized. Ten years ago the Labor Relations Commission ruled that 
graduate students were not eligible for recognition for purposes of collective bargaining. They might 
or might not make the same decision. 

The graduate students who then addressed the trustees were: Marc Kenen, Renee Heberle, 
Gerald McCauslin and Paul Nakaroshis. They gave the Committee a historical perspective of the 

2 



GEO, spoke about why they decided to organize and why they would not accept anything less than 
full collective bargaining rights on campus. They noted that they had not had the opportunity to 
consult with the President on the proposal before the Committee, but indicated a number of concerns 
about its specificity. 

Chair Oakes then asked for a motion to go into executive session to discuss items related to 
litigation, collective bargaining and honorary degrees and said the committee would reconvene in 
open session. At 5:00 p.m., it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To enter executive session 

Chair Oakes voted for the motion as- did Trustees Baker, Foley and Kruczek. 

At 6:30 p.m., the committee came out of executive session and Chair Oakes reported that the 
committee took the following action. 

To recommend that the Board authorize the Chancellor of the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst to continue discussions with the Board of Regents and the Office of Employee 
Relations (Secretary of Administration and Finance) regarding an appropriate procedure by 
which some graduate employees (teaching assistants and other classifications as may be 
deemed appropriate by the campus administration) may participate in an election concerning 
their desire to be represented by some form of union organization for the purposes of 
collective bargaining. 

If the campus administration, the Board of Regents, and the Office of Employee Relations 
reach the conclusion that such an election is appropriate, we believe the best and most 
appropriate method of determining the question of union representation is for graduate 
student employees to file an appropriate petition at the Massachusetts Labor Relations 
Commission, which will rule on the issue. Should the graduate student employees choose 
not to do so, then the Chancellor is authorized to arrange for such an election with the 
following stipulations: 

1. The election will be conducted by an appropriate neutral party or organization with 
experience in such matters. 

2. The election will provide ample time for thorough discussion by all parties of the 
issues and consequences of unionization of graduate student employees. 

3. The election will be by ballots distributed to all graduate student employees deemed 
eligible by the campus administration to participate in the election, with the outcome of 
the election requiring a vote of a majority of those graduate students deemed eligible to 
vote. 

4. Appropriate opportunity to secure listing on the ballot will be available to any 
organization that represents graduate student employees. 

5. Eligible graduate student employees will have the option of selecting a form of 
representation not involving collective bargaining. 

6. It is understood that bargaining with any organization which has secured a majority 
vote of those graduate student employees deemed eligible to vote will be limited to issues 
related to their status as employees under G. L. c. 150E, and will explicitly exclude all 
matters pertaining to their status as students, including all matters of academic policy. 

3 



and, 



If, after consultation with the Board of Regents and the Office of Employee Relations, such 
an election is held, and if a majority of graduate student employees deemed eligible to vote 
choose a representative for the purpose of collective bargaining, the Board of Trustees will 
recommend to the Board of Regents that recognition be granted to such representative, subject 
to the laws and regulations of the Commonwealth, including without limitation, G. L. c. 
15A, c. 75, and c. 150E. It is understood that recognition will be subject to and in accordance 
with any determination made by the Massachusetts Labor Relations Commission regarding 
the legal status of the bargaining relationship. 

To recommend that the Board award honorary degrees to those individuals agreed upon in 
executive session and to instruct the Chancellors to proceed with the necessary arrangements. 



There being no further business to come before the Committee, the meeting adjourned at 6:35

and Teixeira

Other Trustees: Trustees Baker, Huang, and Nakajima 

University Administration: President Knapp, Vice President Lenhardt, Mr. Edwards, Ms. Wanczyk, 
and Mr. Wolcott

In the absence of Trustee Carlin, Chair Oakes called the meeting to order at 2:25 p.m. 

The first agenda item was a review of the Auxiliary Enterprises Trust Fund at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst. This item provided the committee with an understanding 
of the management of the fiscal activities of trust fund accounts. Mr. Ashoke Ganguli, Director of 
the Division of Auxiliary Services, briefed the Committee on the Division's responsibilities for the 
management of the Campus Center Complex, University Food Services, and all aspects of the 
University Store. Its primary mission is to provide quality services through all its operating 
departments to students, faculty, staff, conferees and guests of the University. He noted the impact 
the fringe benefit recovery, amounting to $4 to 6 million dollars, will have on the operation of the 
division. 

The next item was a review of the 1989 University Financial Report . Ms. Wanczyk, 
University Controller, gave an overview of the report which provides a public accounting of the 
financial affairs of the University and is required by Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 75. The 
report is one of the few consolidated University reports and includes all three campuses and all 
funds. Because of the consolidated nature of the report, the Committee raised a concern about the 
perception of outside individuals who may read this document vis-a-vis the realities of the current 
fiscal crisis with the state appropriation. After a lengthy discussion, the Committee expressed an 
interest in having included in the report additional information generated on a three campus basis. 

The next item was a Personnel Action for Leverett J. Zompa as Provost at the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston. Trustee Rooney indicated his approval of the appointment but noted a 
sensitivity on campus to the salary level. It was moved, seconded and 



VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve an overscale 

salary of $90,000 for Leverett J. Zompa as Provost 
effective September 1, 1989 at the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston. (Doc. T90-015) 

The Committee then considered a request for an Easement for the Central Massachusetts Long 
Term Care Partnership . The easement will provide a secondary means of access to a new nursing 
home being built adjacent to the Worcester campus and also permit connection to the existing sewer 
and storm drainage pipes. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board authorize the President of 

the University of Massachusetts subject to approval of 
the Board of Regents of Higher Education, and the 
Division of Capital Planning and Operations to grant an 
easement to the Central Massachusetts Long Term Care 
Partnership for a right of ingress and egress to the 
Partnership's property and for connection to the existing 
sewer and storm drain pipes. (Doc. T90-014) 

Chancellor Laster then introduced the budget for the FY1990 Curriculum Support Fee . It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To approve the FY'90 Curriculum Support Fee budget for 

the Worcester campus as contained in Doc. T89-036B. 

The next item dealt with constructing an En gineering Student Center at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst. The Center would be built as an addition to an existing building, Marcus 
Hall, and is a gift from the University Foundation. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board authorize the President of 

the University of Massachusetts to request the Board of 
Regents of Higher Education to obtain a license from the 
Division of Capital Planning and Operations for the 
University of Massachusetts Foundation to construct the 
Student Center as an addition to Marcus Hall on behalf 
of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and, upon 
completion, to accept the Student Center as a gift from 
the University of Massachusetts Foundation. (Doc. T90- 
005) 

Chancellor Duffey then introduced the next item. The action required by the Board allows 
the University of Massachusetts Building Authority to provide a transfer to the University 
Foundation of $660,000 set aside to transfer and reconstruct the horsebarns currently on the site 
where the Mullins Convocation Center will be built. The funds will be used as part of the funding to 
acquire Young Meadow Farm and will eliminate the need to reconstruct the horsebarns. It was 
moved, seconded and 

RESOLVED: To recommend to the Board that the making and 

performance of an Agreement Regarding Relocation of 
Livestock Housed on the Site of the William D. Mullins 
Memorial Center (the "Agreement") among the Trustees 
(the "Trustees") of the University of Massachusetts (the 
"University"), University of Massachusetts Building 
Authority (the "Authority") and the University of 
Massachusetts Foundation, Inc. (the "Foundation") be and 
the same hereby is authorized; that the Trustees or a 
majority thereof be and hereby are authorized to sign, 
seal with the common seal of the University and of the 



Trustees, acknowledge if deemed advisable, and deliver 
the Agreement in or substantially in the form presented 
to this meeting (subject to such minor changes, insertions 
and omissions as may be approved by the Trustees or a 
majority thereof, the Chairman or Vice Chairman of the 
Authority); that the form of the Agreement presented to 
this meeting and each term, condition and provision 
therein contained be and the same hereby are approved, 
subject to such minor changes, insertions and omissions as 
may be approved by the Trustees or a majority thereof 
and the Chairman or Vice Chairman of the Authority; 
and the officer and officers of the Foundation executing 
the Agreement on behalf of the Foundation; and that the 
execution of the Agreement by the Trustees or a m 
majority thereof shall be conclusive evidence (a) of the 
approval by the Trustees of any such minor changes, 
insertions or omissions and the authorization of the same 
and (b) that the form of the Agreement so executed (with 
approved changes, insertions and omissions, if any) is as 
hereby authorized and approved. 

This resolution supersedes all prior votes passed by the 
Trustees with respect to the transfer of moneys by the 
Authority for the payment of a portion of the purchase 
price of Young Meadow Farm. (Doc. T90-006) 

Vice President Lenhardt then updated the Committee on the payment of Fringe Benefit costs 
for employees on non-state accounts for FY'90 and beyond. He indicated that discussions are 
continuing about the rate, method and timing of payments. 

Mr. Edwards, University Budget Director, distributed a summary of the Governor's House I 
budget recommendations for FY'91 and reviewed its detail. The total budget proposed by the 
Governor for all of public higher education is $642.4 million dollars, a decrease of approximately 
$48 million dollars from the current level of spending, and an overall decrease of 7.5%. The two 
main areas where the reductions have been made are in the Scholarship Program ($23.6 million) 
and the campuses ($20.5 million). The Governor is proposing that the Board of Regents raise tuition 
by 12% to 15% for next year to partially offset the reductions in state appropriations. 

Chancellor Duffey added that the Legislature recently votedg an increase in tuition for out- 
of-state students, stipulated that the students would not be required to pay the increase until 
September. However, a bill may be introduced to require payment prior to July. This will 
substantially hurt the University's reputation and may affect the number of students who return to 
the University. 

Chair Oakes suggested that the Board consider establishing a Legislative Action Committee 
to deal more formally with legislative and administration issues. 

Trustee Kruczek, in the absence of Trustee O'Leary, reported for the subcommittee on tuition 
and fees at the Medical School. He said the Committee met at Worcester on February 9th and was 
presented with demographic and comparative data concerning the drop in applications at the 
medical school, the lack of good financial aid packages, and tuition and fees at other Massachusetts 
medical schools. He also noted that forty-eight percent of the students attending the medical 
school are first generation students whose parents have not attended college. Only seven to nine 
percent of the students' parents are physicians. Additionally, the Committee suggested that the 
Trustee Affirmative Action Committee review the issues related to minority recruitment and 
financial aid. 



Chair Oakes then asked for a motion to go into Executive Session to discuss Audits. At 4:05 
p.m., it was moved, seconded 
and 



VOTED: 



To enter executive session. 



The meeting adjourned at 4:20 p.m.

Representative 

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Laster, Deputy Chancellor Van Etten 

In the absence of Trustee Carlin, Trustee Reed called the meeting to order at 2:00 p.m. The 
first item on the agenda for discussion was the FY'90 Mid-Year Budget Reviews for each campus. 
Vice Chancellors Page, MacCormack, and Deputy Chancellor Van Etten spoke to the details of the 
budgets. Deputy Chancellor Van Etten emphasized the fact that the situation at the Hospital will 
become more critical if rate relief is not forthcoming. 

Vice President Lenhardt then spoke to the FY'90 Mid-Year Budget Review for Trust Fund 
Interest. 

Next on the agenda was a report on the use of FY'89 Trustee Reserve Allocation in the 
amount of $1.7 million dollars for the purpose of supporting academic and instructional programs at 
the three campuses. 

The next item was the FY'91 Student Fee Budgets at the campuses. At the Amherst campus 
the total fee increase of $688 was summarized as follows: $338 for the impact of legislation 
requiring non-state funds to pay full fringe benefit costs, $72 for the impact of reducing the 
enrollment for FY'91, $22 for the impact of budgeting for a 2.5% salary reserve, $20 for increases due 
to specific costs described in more detail in each trust fund, $82 to fund a mandated sprinkler system 
work in the high rise dormitories and $104 for the students share of the telecommunications system 
and operation, of which $4 is to offset reduction in enrollment. 

It was noted that the fee increases had received careful campus scrutiny and were supported 
by the student rent and fees committee. 

Trustee Nakajima raised a concern about the Athletic fee, particularly the need to expand 
and add development activities. President Duffey suggested a joint meeting with the Ad Hoc 
Committee to look at this issue. 



The Boston campus proposed an athletic fee of $90.00 for full-time students, a $20 increase. 
Other fee increases were: Continuing Education $10, Commencement $10 and Recreation $20. The 
Curriculum Support Fee will be continued at its current level, $600 per year. 

At Worcester, the only fee increase requested was $25 in the Student Health Fee. The 
Curriculum Support Fee is also requested to be continued at its current level. 

After discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the FY'91 Student Fee-Based 
Budgets and other fees contained in Doc. T90-020

Then considered was the Establishment of Trust Funds at the Amherst campus. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish the University-Without-Walls 

Advising/ Assessment Trust Fund at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst 
which self-supporting trust fund shall have as its purpose to provide 
assistance to students in the program in the design of individualized bachelors

education to create new opportunities for non- traditional students; 
further, to approve the budget for said trust fund as set forth in 
Doc. T90-020. 



and, 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish the Registrar's Services Trust Fund at

shall have as its purpose to support the non-academic services of the Registrar's 
Office; further, to approve the budget for said trust fund as set forth in Doc. T90- 
020; and further, to rescind the Board vote of May 5, 1976 which established the

and further, 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish the Residential Telecommunications 

Trust Fund at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst which self-supporting 
trust fund shall have as its purpose the provision of telephone service, the 
management of access to the cable television capacity of the telephone system, 
and assistance in access to computer services for the residence halls and family 
housing apartments; further, to approve the budget for said trust fund as set 
forth in Doc. T90-020; and further, to rescind the Board vote of August 11, 1982 
which established the Residence Hall Telecommunications Trust Fund Doc. T82- 
060. 



The next item was an Increase in Tuition Waviers at the Worcester campus. The requested 
increase in need-based tuition waivers would bring the limit from $92,120 to $138,844 for FY'91. It was 
moved, seconded and 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve an increase in need based tuition 
waivers from $92,120 to $138,844 at the University of Massachusetts 
Medical School. (Doc. T90-027, T86-039, T83-098, T82-062) 

Chancellor Laster then spoke to the proposed revision to the scope and purpose of the 
Medical Education Trust Fund which would extend to support both continuing education and other 
Medical Center activities. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve a revised Statement of Trust for 
the Medical Education Trust Fund at the University of Massachusetts at 
Worcester by deleting paragraph 2 of the Board vote of February 2, 1977

Department. One member is to be designated by the Chairman of the 
History Department and one by the Dean of Faculty. Unused income

principal of the fund. (Doc. T90-029) 

The Committee then heard from Deputy Chancellor Van Etten regarding alternative 
financing for the construction of the Ambulatory Care Center at the Medical Center . Given the fact 
that state appropriated funds have not been released, one option available would be to use the 
Health & Education Facilities Authority (HEFA). Further information on this item will be

COMMITTEE ON BUDGET AND FINANCIAL AFFAIRS 

Tuesday, June 5, 1990; 2:00 p.m.

Guests: Mr. Walsh, Student Trustee-Elect, UM/Worcester 

Trustee Oakes in the absence of Trustee Carlin convened the meeting at 2:10 p.m. The 
first item on the agenda was the FY'91 Major Trust Fund Budg ets at Amherst, Boston and 
Worcester. Vice Chancellors Page, MacCormack, and Deputy Chancellor Van Etten spoke to 
the highlights contained in the budgets. It was noted that there has been an increase in 
revenue and expenditures for most of the trust funds because of high personnel costs as 
required by the recent legislation requiring the campuses to pay fringe benefits costs for trust 
funded employees in FY'91. 

The FY'91 Hospital Budget is projecting a gain of $2,200,000. The reasons for the 
increase includes increased activity (7% admissions for 1990), effective cost controls, and 
decreased length of patient stay, reduced by one-half a day or eight percent. Deputy 
Chancellor Van Etten highlighted the key planning assumptions included in the budget. 
In addition to the net gain previously noted, the hospital is anticipating full rate relief 
from the Rate Setting Commission which will reduce the impact of paying fringe benefits, a 
5.2% admissions increase, a 1% increase in medicare reimbursement, a 6.5% price increase, a 
reduction of 10 FTE's, a payroll increase as a result of collective bargaining settlements, a 
non-payroll increase of 9.3% and capital expenditures between $7 to $10 million dollars. 

It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the Major Trust Fund Budgets at the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Boston and Worcester as contained 
in Doc. T90-035. 



and, 



VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the FY'91 Budget of the University of 
Massachusetts Hospital as contained in Doc. T90-035. 

The next item on the agenda was the establishment of the Public Health Computer Lab 



Trust Fund at the Amherst campus. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board establish the Public Health Computer Lab 
Trust Fund at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst which self- 
supporting trust fund shall have as its purpose to support the cost of 
providing computer resources to research grant-funded projects in the Public 
Health Division; further, to approve the budget for said trust fund as 
contained in Doc. T90-042. 

Next was a revision to the Telephone Home Account Trust Fund. The Amherst campus 
is in the final phase of the telecommunications project and beginning July 1990 the campus 
will be running the system. The change in name to the Telecommunications Network 
Services and revised statement of trust more accurately reflects the services to be provided. 
It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve a change in the name and Statement 
of Trust for the Telephone Home Account Trust Fund to the 
Telecommunications Network Services Trust Fund which self-supporting trust 
fund shall have as its purpose the recharging of telephone expenses to non- 
state accounts and for issuing campus payments for telecommunications, 
networking and video services; and further, to rescind the Telephone Home 
Account Trust Fund. 

Trustee Haynes is recorded as opposed. 

The next item, Authorization for Expenditure of Funds, delegates authority to the 
President to expend state and non-state funds until the final budget document is acted on by 
the Board. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board authorize the President to approve and adopt 
the policies and procedures governing the allocation and expenditure of state 
and non-state funds by the University from July 1, 1990 until such time as the 
Board adopts the Operating Budget for FY1991. 

The Committee then considered the Curriculum Support Fee at the Amherst and Boston 
Campuses. The campus recommendations were to decrease the fees by $50 at Amherst and by 
$100 per semester (pro-rated for part-time students) at Boston. This reduction was possible 
given the proposed tuition increase and retention at the campuses. The Committee was 
informed that the Board of Regents which was meeting simultaneously had approved the 
tuition increases for public higher education amounting to a 28% for undergraduates and 27% 
for graduates. President Duffey recommended the Committee incorporate the approval of 
the tuition increase with the Curriculum Support Fees. Trustees Rooney and Kruczek 
expressed their opposition to the tuition increases. The Committee also requested 
information regarding how this increase in tuition is affecting the institution in terms of 
individuals who are accepted but not able because of financial reasons to come to the 
University. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the tuition as adopted by the Board 
of Regents of Higher Education at the Amherst, Boston and Worcester 
campuses as follows: 

Undergraduate Resident $1,935 

Graduate Resident $2,400 

Undergraduate Non-Resident $6,788 

Graduate Non-Resident $7,092 

And at the Medical School as follows: 



( 



And, 



Graduate Resident $7,900 



To recommend that the Board approve the FY'91 Curriculum Support Fee at 
the University of Massachusetts at Amherst as follows: $580 per year for 
full-time undergraduates and $350 per year for full-time graduate students. 



And further, 



To recommend that the Board approve a change in the FY'91 Curriculum 
Support Fee at the University of Massachusetts at Boston from $300 per 
semester to 
the following: 

8 credit hours or more $200 per sem/$400 per year 

4-7 credit hours $100 per sem/$200 per year 

1-3 credit hours $ 50 per sem/$100 per year 

(Doc. T90-020) 

Trustees Kruczek and Rooney are recorded as opposed. Trustee Haynes is recorded as 
present. 

The Committee then considered Personnel Actions from the Amherst and Worcester 
campuses. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve an overscale salary of $115,000 for 
Professor Michael Green at the University of Massachusetts at Worcester. 
(Doc. T90-046) 



And, 



To recommend that the Board approve an overscale salary of $127,361 for 
Michael Bratt as Vice Dean at the University of Massachusetts at 
Worcester. (Doc. T90-047) 

And further, 

To recommend that the Board approve an overscale salary of $75,000 for 
Daniel Melley as Interim Vice Chancellor for University Relations and 
Development. (Doc. T90-043) 

Trustee Rooney is recorded as present. 

The next item was the Ambulatory Care Annex at the Medical Center. Chancellor 
Laster reviewed its history for which $11 million dollars in state funds had been 
appropriated but because of the state's financial situation has not been released and will not 
be forthcoming. The demand for this additional space is urgent and it was proposed that 
the Hospital proceed with financing the entire project to construct the facility. After 
discussion and noting the precedent, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve, in principle, the construction and 

financing of the Ambulatory Care Annex project as described in Doc. T90-048; 
and to delegate to the President of the University the authority to approve 
the project, after consultation with the Chair of the Committee on Budget 
and Financial Affairs. 



Chancellor Laster presented the next item, Group Practice Subsidiary Purchase . He 
indicated that the Medical Center has been approached to provide urologic coverage for 
Northern Worcester County because the principal urologist in the area is leaving 
Massachusetts to practice in California. This provides an opportunity for additional 
teaching sites, tertiary care referrals and the community will have high quality 
comprehensive coverage and speciality services. After a review of the financial statement, 
it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board authorize the Chancellor of the Worcester 
Campus to execute a purchase and sale agreement for certain assets of the 
practice of Manish Mehta, M.D., on such terms and conditions as the 
Chancellor shall approve, and, further, to authorize payment from the 
Group Practice Trust Fund of up to $150,000 as the purchase price of such 
assets. 

Further, to authorize the Chancellor of the Worcester Campus, with 
the approval of the Board of Regents, to request the Division of Capital 
Planning and Operations to lease or sublease medical office space for 
the conduct of a urology practice in Worcester North County, 
Massachusetts. (Doc. T90-049) 

Chancellor Laster updated the Committee on the Tri-River Community Health Center 
expansion of approximately 11,000 gross square feet of additional space. 

The Committee then considered the recommendation that the NEMA (Northeast 
Medical Alliance, Inc.) Stock be transferred to U/Med. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board authorize the Chancellor of the Worcester 

Campus, upon approval of the President of the University, to sell the NEMA 
(Northeast Medical Alliance, Inc.) stock currently held by the University of 
Massachusetts Foundation, Inc. to UMed, a subsidiary of University Health 
Systems, Inc., at fair market value, provided, however, that the proceeds of 
such a sale shall be used for the purposes specified in paragraph 2 of Doc. 
T85-052B. 

Chair Oakes then called for a motion to go into Executive Session to discuss the Audit 
Plan and Audits . At 4:00 p.m., it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To enter executive session. 

Chair Oakes voted for the motion as did Trustees DiCara, Haynes, Kruczek, Rooney 
and Teixeira. 

The meeting adjourned at 4:10 p.m.

Trustee Carlin convened the meeting at 2:15 p.m. and introduced Trustee Walsh from the 
Worcester campus, the newest committee member, as well as Trustees McQuilken from the Amherst 
campus and Trustee Canina from the Boston campus. 

The first item on the agenda was the Medical Center Group Practice Budg et which was 
presented by Deputy Chancellor Van Etten. Highlighting the FY1991 budget, he indicated that 
patient cash receipts were projected to increase 7% for the year, which is significantly less than 
prior year increases of 18-20%. 

A question was raised concerning whether the self-insurance trust could purchase the excess 
insurance. This will be researched. After further discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve the FY91 Group Practice 
Budget as contained in Doc. T90-035. 

The next item considered was approval of the FY91 Computer Services Trust Fund Budget and 
a request to refinance the existing lease/purchase contract through the Health and Educational 
Facilities Authority. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the FY91 budget for the University 

Computer Services Trust Fund at the Amherst campus as contained in Doc. T90- 
035; 



And, 



To approve the refinancing of the existing CDC CYBER lease/purchase 
contract through the Health and Educational Facilities Authority as described 
in Doc. T90-035. 



The Committee then considered a Personnel Action from the Worcester campus. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve an overscale salary of $100,000 for 
Derrick Hollings, Chief Financial Officer at the University of Massachusetts 
Hospital. (Doc. T90-052) 

Associate Dean Cohen then presented the background, conclusions and recommendations of 
the Worcester campus to change the provisions of the legislatively mandated Learning Contracts . 

Trustee Haynes who served on an ad hoc committee on tuition spoke in favor of this 
strengthening of the learning contracts. The proposed summary of recommendations were: 

The University of Massachusetts Medical School recommends that the terms and provisions 
of the Learning Contract be changed and that additional initiatives be undertaken in 
support of it mission, as follows: 

1 . The service payback provision of the Learning Contract should be increased from one 
year to two years of approved services, 

2. Approved service payback should now be limited to one of three possible practice 
conditions: 

a. primary care practice anywhere in Massachusetts, 

b. other specialty practice in an underserved area of the state, 

c. public, academic or community service of particular benefit 

to the Commonwealth. 

Final determination of whether an individual's service payback meets one of the 
three criteria should be made by the Medical School Dean, on recommendation of 
the school's Learning Contract Committee. The Committee should seek appropriate 
consultations with the AHEC program or relevant state and regional medical care 
and health planning agencies. 

3. The monetary payback should be at 8% interest (with periodic updating) over a 
period of eight years, to begin at least six months after graduate medical education 
deferment. Such deferment should not exceed seven years. 

4. The Medical School should continue and strengthen its progressive curriculum and 
educational support programs which provide medical student training and clinical 
experiences in primary care and community service. The state's and the Medical 
Center's support of its outstanding primary care and community service residency 
training programs should be strengthened. The Medical Center should "adopt" three 
geographical areas within the Commonwealth in which the Medical Center will 
make special efforts to concentrate certain physician manpower programs; the three 
areas being Cape Cod and the Islands, Southeastern Massachusetts, and the 
Lowell/ Lawrence area. In addition, the Medical Center should build upon its 
successes in public sector psychiatry by developing a strategy for identifying, in 
concert with other state agencies, those public health and public medical care 
institutions' needs of the Commonwealth which lend themselves to collaborative 
relations with the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.

MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
BUDGET AND FINANCIAL AFFAIRS

Committee Members Absent : Trustees Bowman, Reed and Teixeira 

University Administration : President Duffey; Vice President Lenhardt; General Counsel 
Searson

UM/Boston : Chancellor Penney; Mr. Edwards, Associate Vice Chancellor; Professor 
Flusberg, Faculty Representative 

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Lazare; Deputy Chancellor Van Etten; Dr. Cooke, Faculty 
Representative 

Trustee Carlin, Chair, convened the meeting at 2:30 pm. 

The first item on the agenda was a discussion of the FY 1991 Budget . A question was 
raised concerning an update on the three part deficit reduction package presented at a 
special Board meeting. President Duffey responded that at Amherst the general position of 
the unions was resistant to the temporary layoff and that every other expenditure should be 
cut before a cut in salaries. Last week, the State Comptroller advised that there was a 
state law which prohibited implementing the temporary layoff as previously indicated, 
and it has been set aside for now. Budgets are being revised and will include layoffs and 
further declines in student enrollment and research support. 

The Committee expressed an interest in receiving a report from all campuses about 
how budget savings will be achieved. 

The next item was the first quarterly report on Non-State Funds as required by the 
Regents Trust Fund guidelines. 

The next item was a request from the Amherst campus to extend a Line of Credit of 
up to $1.2 M to the University of Massachusetts Foundation from the University Cash 
Management System for the sole purpose of construction of the Engineering Student Center. 
This would be in addition to the $1.1 million approved by the Board in October 1990 for the 
Hadley Farm. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve a line of credit 

of up to $1,200,000 to the University of Massachusetts 
Foundation, Inc. from the University cash management 
system for the purpose of iniating construction by the 
Spring 1991 of the College of Engineering's Student Center. 
The term to be five years with an option to review with 
an interest rate set at prime less 1% Interest to be paid 
quarterly on the average balance outstanding during the 
period. (Doc. T90-095) 



The Committee then considered an Allocation of Funds from Trustee Reserve to the 
David C. Knapp Scholarship Fund . Vice President Lenhardt indicated that there had been 
on-going fundraising efforts which will culminate in a benefit dinner. It was suggested that 
$100,000 be used as the scholarship criteria specifically outlined and that an additional 
$150,000 be made available in the name of David C. Knapp for general scholarship purposes 
on the basis of need to students at the Amherst and Boston campuses. It was moved, 
seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board approve an allocation 

of funds from Trustee Reserve of $100,000 for the 
David C. Knapp Scholarship Fund and of an additional 
$150,000 in the name of the David C. Knapp to be made 
available for general scholarship purposes on the basis 
of need to students at the Amherst and Boston campuses. 
(Doc. T90-075A) 

Trustee Baker then recommended on behalf of the University Relations and 
Development Committee that funds be made available from Trustee Reserve to Support the 
Worcester Campus Development Proposal for FY 1991 . It was noted that the recommendation 
was not for the full amount proposed because the budget was based on annual fixed amounts 
and the fiscal year was half over. In addition the campus had not expended the total 
amount allocated from FY 1990. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve an allocation 

of funds from Trustee Reserve of $86,250 for FY91 
development efforts at the University of Massachusetts 
at Worcester. (Doc. T89-059A) 

Trustee Walsh is recorded as opposed. 

The Committee then considered an amendment to the University's Purchasing Policy 
which would grant the President the authority to sign leases of less than one year without 
Board approval. Leases of more than one year or renewal or extensions of a one year lease 
will require Board approval. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED i To recommend that the Board amend the Purchasing 

Policy (Doc. T77-001A) by deleting item 14(c) and 
substituting therefore the following: 

"Authority to enter into leases of real property, 
with specific Board of Trustee approval for 
periods exceeding one year, or for any renewal 
or extension which, combined with the original 
lease, shall exceed one year." 

The Committee was then requested to approve an amendment to a vote passed on 
October 31, 1990 that allowed the Amherst and Boston campuses to make use of Surpluses in 
Certain Trust Funds during the spring of 1991 semester to mitigate the effects of the recent 
budget reductions. The amendment was intended to clarify the sources of surplus funds that 
could be used by the campuses. After a discussion of the implications of this proposal, it 
was suggested that such savings be limited to $500,000 for both campuses and that the Vice 
Chancellors for Administration and Finance shall periodically report to the Committee on 
Budget and Financial Affairs regarding the status of such savings. It was also noted that 
this is being dealt with because of the extenuating circumstances and it is not the wish or 
intent implied or otherwise that this be used in any precedent setting way in the future. It 
was moved, seconded and 



-2- 



VOTED : To recommend that the Board notwithstanding any other rule, 

regulation, or vote of the Board of Trustees to the contrary, the 
Chancellor of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and the 
Chancellor of the University of Massachusetts at Boston are hereby 
authorized to identify savings for Fiscal Year 1991 in trust fund 
accounts maintained for the Amherst and Boston campuses, 
which are attributable to budgeted but unexpended cost-of-living 
increases and to savings from temporary layoffs of trust funded 
employees; to withdraw said savings from revenues generated in such 
trust fund accounts in the Spring Semester, 1991; and to expend said 
savings for general campus operations, as the Chancellors shall 
determine. Further, that the votes of the Board of Trustees 
establishing such trust funds are hereby modified for the Spring 
semester, 1991 so as to authorize the Chancellors to take such actions, 
and that the Surplus Trust Fund votes adopted by the Board of 
Trustees on October 31, 1990 are hereby rescinded. 

Trustee Haynes is recorded as opposed 

The Committee then considered Audits . Because of questions which the Committee 
had concerning audits of Medical School Teaching Hospital Trust Funds the Group Practice 
Plan and Self Insurance Trust, and departure from current practice, it was suggested that 
they be deferred until the February meeting. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board accept the following audits: 

Amherst-University Health Services Pharmacy, Follow-up 

Report (Doc. T90-084) 

University of Massachusetts at Boston WUMB-FM Radio, 

Financial Statements (Doc. T90-083) 

University of Massachusetts at Amherst WFCR,FM and Friends 

of WFCR, Inc., Financial Statement and Management Letter, 

Fiscal Year 1990 (Doc. T90-082) 

Trustee Haynes then raised a question concerning the Co-generation Plant at the 
Amherst campus. He proposed a resolution for the Committee to consider and it was 
suggested that there be further discussion with President Duffey, Vice Chancellor Page, 
General Counsel and Associate Vice Provost Tribble prior to the February meeting. 

There being no further business to come before the Committee the meeting adjourned 
at 3:35 pm.

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

JOINT RETREAT 

COMMITTEE ON ACADEMIC AND STUDENT AFFAIRS 

COMMITTEE ON BUDGET AND FINANCIAL AFFAIRS 

January 22, 1990 

Chancellor's Conference Room 

Boston, Massachusetts 



Trustees Present : Trustees Baker, Carlin, DiCara, Haynes, Huang, Kruczek, McBay, 
O'Leary, Reed, Rooney, and Zervas; Mrs. Fontaine, Administrative Secretary. 

Administration : President Knapp, Mr. Cusker, Vice Presidents Lenhardt and Smith, 
Associate Vice President Tribble, General Counsel Searson. 

UM /Amherst : Deputy Provost Crosson, Vice Chancellor Madson, Deans 
Dreher and Schwartz, and Professor May. 

UM/ Boston : Chancellor Penney, Vice Chancellors McCormack and Zompa 

UM/ Worcester : Deputy Chancellor Van Etten 

President Knapp opened the discussion by reporting on a recent meeting with the 
Governor concerning the FY'91 budget. The Governor's recommendation for 
public higher education is $642.4 million, a decrease of 7.5% from current year 
planned expenditures. The impact on the scholarship program will include a total 
reduction of $23.6 million. The Governor will recommend increasing tuition 
sufficient to offset the reduction. 

He then turned the retreat over to Vice President Smith who thanked both Chairs 
for their willingness to hold the retreat and indicated his hope that this would be 
the first in a series of future meeting of this type. He said communication between 
these two committees is strategically important, especially in times such as these. 
Specifically, the Budget and Financial Affairs Committee should be aware of the 
impact of budgetary decisions on the academic priorities of the University and the 
Academic and Student Affairs Committee must have a clear understanding of the 
budgetary constraints under which the University must operate in its efforts to 
maintain the quality of its academic mission. 

He said that the primary purpose of the retreat was twofold. First, to present 
information on how the budget reductions over the last two and one-half years 
have affected the academic/ instructional mission and programs of the University. 
Second, to discuss how academic decisions in the future will be affected by a severely 
limited and unstable operating budget. He added that there is no intention to 
promote micro-management by the Board. Rather, to engage the Board in a 
discussion of the difficult decisions facing the campuses and the rationale that will 



be used in making these decisions. The projected outcome of these discussions are 
at least two in number. First, by becoming better informed, the Board will be better 
prepared for the decisions which it will be called upon to make. Secondly, as the 
primary advocates for the University it is important that the Board understand what 
is to be protected and why. 

Chancellor Penney then reviewed the reductions the campus has been forced to 
take. On July 1, 1989, the campus allocation was $62,065,124. After all reductions, the 
campus is operating with a base allocation of $55,700,813, a 10.25 percent reduction. 
Revenue enhancements have included $2.3 million dollars in tuition retention and 
$3.9 million dollars in Curriculum Support fees bringing the total campus funding 
to $62,173,265. To bring the campus to minimal levels of funding the campus would 
require $71.7 million dollars. She then reviewed the personnel reductions and cuts 
made since July, 1988, which include 22.46% coming from the administrative area, 
14.87% from the academic administrative area, and 1.10% from the academic area. 

Provost Zompa then spoke in detail about the restructuring planning process 
which involves faculty, staff and students. The campus is hopeful to have a plan to 
present later in the spring. 

Deputy Chancellor Van Etten spoke about the impact at the Worcester campus 
and said that the most serious fiscal issue which will affect the campus will be the 
payback to the state of fringe benefit costs for non-state funded employees. This 
would amount to $22.23 million of additional fringe benefits payments the campus 
would be required to pay. 

Deputy Provost Crosson reported for the Amherst campus. She spoke about the 
campus strategy in dealing with the cuts and the serious negative impact this 
situation will have on faculty retention and recruitment as well as on student 
enrollment. 

The meeting adjourned at 12:10 p.m.

Chair McBay called the meeting to order at 12:14 p.m. She asked for the Report on Student 
Governance at the Amherst campus as the first agenda item. 

Vice Chancellor Madson, in introducing this item, gave some background information on the 
importance student governance plays on the Amherst campus and introduced Laura Filkins and Tracy 
Davis, Student Government leaders. 

They each spoke of the Student Government Association and its many functions. Much of 
their report focused on RSO's, Registered Student Organizations, of which there are 250 various 
organizations on the Amherst campus. Many different interests are represented from a ten member 
Chess Club to the Distinguished Visitor's Program which has brought to the campus such speakers 
as William F. Buckley and Louis Farrakhan. 

An important sub-division of these RSO's are the Student Controlled Businesses such as the 
People's Market, which is a health food store. 

Twenty-five percent of the student population take part in one of the RSO's which is around 
the national average. The student leaders also presented a Student Activities Trust Fund Budget 
which showed funding comparisons between FY89 and FY90. 

The next item on the agenda was an Appointment with Tenure — UM/Worcester. Deputy 
Provost Kelly said Dr. David Bear was an excellent candidate and was unanimously recommended 
by the Departmental Faculty. It was moved, seconded and

A Request for Waiver of Return from Sabbatical Leave --UM/ Amherst was the next agenda 
item. Provost O'Brien spoke of Professor Rosenau's desire to accept another position as director of a 
corporation. Due to the current budgetary situation it is expected the Department of Food 
Engineering will be phased out leaving very little for Professor Rosenau to return to. 
In addition, Professor Rosenau has also expressed his desire to provide the University with his 
services as an adjunct faculty member. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board waive the 

requirement that Professor John Rosenau of the 
Department of Food Engineering return to the 
University of Massachusetts at Amherst on 
completion of his sabbatical leave. (Doc. T90-008) 

The next item was Graduation Lists -UM/Amherst and UM/Worcester. It was moved, 
seconded and

January 2, 1990 and February 1, 1990 
undergraduate and graduate graduation 
lists at the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst and the June, 1990 graduation 
lists at Worcester, subject to the com- 
pletion of all requirements as certified 
by the Recorder of the campus. (Doc. T90-001) 

Campus Reports was the last agenda item. Provost Zompa from the Boston campus spoke of 
the 400 members of faculty, staff and alumni who had attended the Monet exhibit at the Museum of 
Fine Arts. Professor Paul Tucker of the Boston campus was the guest Curator and gave a fascinating 
lecture on Monet's work. 

On March 3rd the Boston campus will be sponsoring a Regional Conference on Diversity. 
There will be panels and workshops set up for all those wishing to attend. 

Provost Zompa then passed out a Report of the Futures Committee, a committee given its 
charge by the Provost to study carefully the future of the University at Boston and make 
recommendations on its mission. 

Provost O'Brien then gave his report. Like the Boston campus, a committee has been formed 
to help the campus get through these trying times. The Rules Committee of the Faculty Senate has 
formed a Faculty Senate Budget Advisory Committee which includes a member from each of the ten 
colleges. They are in the process of developing criteria for making changes at the campus. If there 
is another budget crisis this group will be in a position to make recommendations. 

He also alerted the Committee that the Graduate Employees Organization (GEO) have 
asked that they be formally recognized. 



Chair McBay inquired about the status of financial aid. Dr. Smith indicated that the 
annual Admissions and Financial Aid Reports would be an agenda item for the next meeting. There 
being no further business the Committee adjourned at 2:05 p.m.

UM/Worcester : Chancellor Laster; Deputy Provost Kelly; Dr. Cooke, Faculty Representative 

Chair McBay convened the meeting at 12:07 p.m. 

While waiting for other Committee members to arrive, Chair McBay asked for the Student 
Health Care Reports from the Amherst and Boston campuses. 

Mr. Kraft, Executive Director of Health Services gave an overview of Health Services 
provided by the Amherst campus, and distributed a letter sent out at the beginning of the year to 
all student health care members. The letter stated that the Student Health fees for the spring 
semester would not be increased, nor would the services be reduced. However, co-payments for three 
of the services would increase: Pharmacy, Dental Care and Eye Care. It was noted that effective 
January 1, 1990 University Health Services would be charged full fringe benefit costs for its 
employees, thus a $350,000 deficit would remain. The increased co-payments would cover this. 

He then spoke of the many support groups involved with Health Services that deal with 
subjects from family alcoholism to dealing with a friend that has AIDS. A question arose about the 
most common problems, UHS sees on a day-to day basis. It was reported that accidents, particularly 
accidents involving sports, are the biggest problem as well as sexually transmitted diseases. 

When asked about the current drug problem afflicting our young people, Mr. Kraft said drug 
use was down but that alcohol was still a very big problem. 

Chair McBay thanked Mr. Kraft for his report and asked Mr. Stockton, Director of Health 
Services at the Boston campus to give his report. 

Mr. Stockton reported that the situation at the Boston campus was quite different from 
Amherst due to the fact that Boston is a commuter university and that many hospitals were nearby 
should someone need serious attention. They do have four beds should there be a need. 



He then talked about the budget problems affecting Health Services at the Boston campus. 

Chair McBay thanked Mr.Stockton for his report and moved to the next agenda item which 
was Appointments with Tenure — UM/ Amherst, UM /Worcester.

reports by Provost Zompa and the Futures Committee, she had received alot of letters and telephone 
calls from students opposing the plan.

VOTED : To recommend that the board change the name of the Department of 
Biochemistry at the University of Massachusetts at Worcester to the 
Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. (Doc. T90-039) 

The Undergraduate Admissions and Financial Aid Reports at UM/ Amherst and UM/ Boston 
were then discussed. 

Dr. Madson spoke of some of the concerns the Amherst campus has regarding the decline in 
applications and the unmet financial aid need which has increased from $33.6 million last year to 
$38 million. He then introduced Mr. Timm Rinehart, Director of Undergraduate Admissions and Mr. 
Arthur Jackson, Director of Financial Aid. In summary, Mr. Rinehart pointed out: 

-Applications decreased 21% from 1988. 

—The SAT scores in 1989 decreased by 2 points. 

—Minority freshmen applicants decreased by 20% from 1988. 

Future plans to attract students include direct mailings, campus visit programs and increased 
merit scholarship programs. 

Mr. Jackson, Director of Financial Aid reported that: 

-Financial Aid applicants determined to have need decreased 
from 17,048 last year to 16,685 this year. 

—In 1989-90, 51% of financial aid funding came from grants, 
41% from loans and 8% from employment. 

—The average undergraduate on financial aid will graduate 
with loans of approximately $9,000. 

Provost Zompa then gave the report for the Boston campus. He pointed out the fact that 
private institutions were having trouble attracting students and were admitting students that would 
ordinarily apply to public universities such as UMass. 

Also, this past March, the Boston campus sponsored a Fair for Adult Learners where they 
expected 500 people to attend; 1100 showed up. This was without any advertising . 

Provost Zompa then introduced Mr. Antrum, Director of Admissions who gave a brief report: 

—The total number of undergraduate applications for Fall 
1989 was at an all-time high. 



—Transfer students now account for 66% of all new students. 

—The percentage of minority students among freshmen is 
25.4%, the highest percent of the decade. 

The highlights from the Director of Student Financial Management, Ms. Byrd's report 
included: 

—Total need for the 5297 needy applicants was almost 
$30, million. 

—51% of student's financial need was met through financial 
aid resources. 

—Minority students received 31% of the aid and demonstrated 
25 of the total need. 

Because of time constraints, Chair McBay asked that this report be brought back to the 
Committee in the fall, stressing the need for more discussion on this issue. 

The next item, Establishment of the Graduate College of Education at the Boston campus 
was discussed at length. Provost Zompa spoke of the need at UM/Boston to address continuing 
reductions in the state appropriation to the University. He noted there has been a great deal of 
discussion between the Administration and the faculty regarding the restructuring issue at 
UM/Boston. So that there may be more discussion, the campus has requested that the Board take 
one action at a time, today being the creation of the Graduate College of Education. This college 
will contain all existing graduate programs for which the campus has degree granting authority. 

The Dean of the present College of Education will help with the transition period and will 
work closely with the Deans of Graduate Studies and Arts and Sciences with this move. After 
discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board establish a 

Graduate College of Education at the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts as described in Doc. 
T90-050.

Chair McBay convened the meeting at 12:05 p.m. and asked that the Committee first 
consider the action items. 

The first item on the agenda was Awards of Tenure at UM/Amherst and 
UM/Worcester. The awards came with strong recommendations from each campus. It was 
moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To recommend that the Board concur with the President in the 
award of tenure to the following individuals: 

University of Massachusetts at Amherst : 

Julie A. Graham as Associate Professor of Geology and

Michael P. Harold as Associate Professor of Chemical 

Engineering 

Nancy F. LaPointe as Associate Professor of Art 

Michael J. Mahoney as Associate Professor of Chemistry 

University of Massachusetts at Worcester:

Oncology (Doc. T90-064) 

The next item was Graduation Lists, UM/Amherst. There were 452 undergraduate 
candidates and 5 for the Division of Continuing Education. Without discussion, it was 
moved, seconded and 



VOTED ; To recommend that the Board approve the September 1, 1990 

graduation lists of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst 
subject to the completion of all requirements certified by the 
Recorder of the campus.. (Doc. T90-001D) 

The next item was Establishment of the B.S. Degree in Geography. UM/Boston. 
Provost Zompa informed the Committee that the new curriculum eliminates the B.S. degree 
in Earth Science, continues and improves the B.A. degree in Geography, giving students the 
option of the B.S. degree in Geography. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend that the Board approve the establishment 
of the B.S. degree in Geography at the University of 
Massachusetts at Boston as contained in Doc. T90-066. 

Provost O'Brien then spoke about the Toint B.A. Program in Hospitality Management 
with HOTELCONSULT. Geneva. Switzerland, UM/Amherst. HOTELCONSULT was 
established in 1982. Its main school located in the village of Le Bouveret offers a two-year 
program leading to a diploma in Hotel Management or an Associate Degree. The University 
would offer a joint degree in Hospitality Management at a new school in the town of Brig. 
The joint degree would be a two-year Associate Degree Transfer Program and a new two-year 
upper division program would be offered by HOTELCONSULT and the University. This 
program would expand opportunities for students at UMass to study abroad as well as 
increase faculty resources for the University. Provost O'Brien indicated that at this time 
Committee action was not required, but the campus would be bringing more information to the 
Committee at a later date. 

Dr. Bratt spoke to the next agenda item, Change of the Name of the Division of 
Gastroenterology to Division of Digestive Disease and Nutrition, UM /Worcester. This item 
too was informational since a division change does not require Board approval. 

A report on the Regulations for Use of Property Policy, UM/Amherst was given by 
Vice Chancellor Madson. The regulations deal with the procedures concerning requests for 
use of space, distribution of literature, fundraising, and rights and duties involved in 
freedom of expression. The proposed regulations have been reviewed by General Counsel and 
will be considered by the Executive Committee later in the day. 

There was considerable discussion concerning the next agenda item, Strengthening the 
Sciences, UM/Boston. Last May, the Provost had appointed a special task force to consider 
a proposal for a new college as a way to strengthen the sciences at the Boston campus. He 
then appointed a second Task Force of six scientists. Their report recommended that the 
University proceed with a College of Natural Sciences and Engineering. The Faculty Council 
had also approved the plan. 

Chancellor Penney spoke in detail of the advantages a new college would bring to the 
University community such as strengthening teaching and research in the sciences as well as 
the urban commitment the University has to the Boston Harbor and other environmental 
issues. She also addressed the question of additional resources in a time of fiscal restraints. 
She had assured the Faculty Council and Department Chairs that no resources would be 
taken from other units for the Sciences, and that there are now six departments already in 
place that have their own budgets. 



Chair McBay then asked for comments from the audience. Professor Cooney, Dean 
Cherry and Associate Provost Kibel spoke in favor of the proposal. Professors Tucker, Tager- 
Flushberg, Godfrey and Paul addressed the problems a new college would bring as well as 
the procedures that led up to this decision. Professor Posner suggested that more time was 
needed to study this issue and invited the Committee members to visit the Science 
Department on campus before the next Committee meeting. 

Chair McBay ended the discussion by suggesting this item go back to the campus for 
further discussion and some kind of agreement between all interested parties before coming 
back to Committee. She felt the Committee needed more information about the most 
important issue, that being how this issue would affect students. She spoke of her alarm 
that UM /Boston did not have a Science requirement and that it is time for the 
administration and members of the faculty to regroup and come together for the good of the 
students and the Community. 

Chancellor Penney said she would put together a committee of members from the 
Science Department and the non-Science Departments, as well as a representative from the 
Faculty to Council to study this issue further. 

Vice Chancellor Desmond then reported on the Admission Guaranteed Program, 
UM/ Boston. Through this program students who take courses in the required areas and meet 
program criteria are assured admission to UM/Boston. Dorchester High School, South 
Boston High School and the Jeremiah E. Burke High School were the three schools involved 
and eighty students are expected to take part in the program. The Committee agreed that 
this was a good strategy for attracting students from the inner Boston neighborhoods. 

Le gal Services was the last agenda item. Trustee McQuilken gave a brief history of 
the legal services issue on the Amherst campus, and reported that the students and the 
administration are working together to put a united proposal together which will be on the 
December agenda. 

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 2:06 p.m.

from G/R Public Relations who reported on the communications plan which will supplement and 
augment the development efforts for the University. He noted that the fiscal and creditability 
crisis has clouded the prestige of the University and the impact of that damage is still unknown. 

Among the problems the University needs to overcome are a low awareness of the system, a 
hostile environment, a misunderstanding of the missions and contributions of the three campuses and 
limited resources to support an expanded and proactive development program. He then proposed an 
overall strategy program to help build a sustained awareness and acceptance of the System. 
Included in the program was an overall positioning theme 

"UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

A SMART INVESTMENT" 

This theme focuses on the combined resources of the University and represents the significant 
and relevant contributions to Massachusetts. 

He also stated that in order for the program to achieve its objective and results there was a 
need for a clear mission and accessibility and participation of the Trustees, President and 
Chancellors. 

A more detailed report describing the program was distributed at the end of the meeting. 
Trustee Baker asked Trustees and campus administrators to submit comments to her or Mr. Brodeur. 
After receiving them and further discussion with the administrators a final version of the plan 
would be presented to the Committee at the next meeting. 



The Committee then heard presentations from the campuses about Alumni Programs. 

Ms. Ruth Green, from the Amherst campus gave a historical overview of the Alumni 
Association which just celebrated its 115th Anniversary. The alumni relations program, however, 
was founded seven years ago and includes the following areas: On-campus Events, Clubs and 
Chapters, Young Alumni and Students Program, Parents Program and Alumni Services. She also 
reviewed for the Committee the initiatives in each of these areas. 

Vice Chancellor Sherman reported that during the past six months the Alumni Office has 
made major accomplishments including computerizing all donor/data base information, progress in 
the Annual Appeal, establishment of a Residents' Alumni Program, and the institution of a Mentor 
Program. 

Mr. O'Brien reported on the efforts of the Alumni Office at Boston. He cited the recent 
"Monet in the '90's' evening at the Museum of Fine Arts led by Professor Paul Tucker and the recent 
contribution of $25,000 from Agnes (Diddy) Cullinane, a member of the class of'52 which was 
matched by her husband John (Hon/86).

In the absence of the Chair, Trustee DiCara convened the meeting at 11:10 a.m. 

Mr. Brodeur and Ms. Singer from G/R Public Relations reported on the progress made to 
date on the Communications/ Development Program. As part of the presentation, several 
pieces of information were distributed to the Committee including a progress report, a report 
on media coverage and a detailed second quarter report 

During the second phase of the program, G/R Public Relations will target certain 
academic programs at each campus. At the Boston campus the programs are Environmental 
Sciences and Gerontology with the expectation that the regional coverage of Gerontology 
will be leveraged nationally. At Amherst, both COINS and Physics/Radio Astronomy will 
be highlighted and Sports Injury Treatment and Prevention and Molecular Medicine will be 
targeted at the Worcester campus. 

President Duffey questioned whether the communications/development program would 
include a training component for the staffs on each campus. If not, the question is whether 
there is a need to have a continuing public relations firm handling all three campuses. As a 
result of the discussion, John Brodeur indicated that as part of the last phase of the 
program, there would be recommendations where the campuses could focus attention on 
priorities and recommendations and as to whether some functions could be contracted. 

John Nero from G/R Public Relations spoke about how the program would be integrated 
into development activities on campus. Trustee Baker suggested that in the next report 
specific grant sponsors or corporations be identified for each of the targeted priorities. 

Other activities planned are the publishing of a " Facts You Should Know Kit " and a 
Development Brochure for the Boston campus. There is also scheduled a Trustee Reception 
on June 20th at 3:00 p.m. at the Worcester campus.

Trustee Baker convened the meeting at 11:15 a.m. and introduced the new student Trustees: 
James Canina from Boston, Angus McQuilken from Amherst and Joseph Walsh from Worcester. 

She then called on the campuses to present a review of the previous year's Development 
Efforts and to present proposals for the second year of a three year funding effort for these 
activities. 

Chancellor Penney presented the highlights of the Boston campus efforts. For the past year 
(1989-1990) the established goal was $252,000 and the annual fund revenues reached $373,478, 
exceeding the goal by 6.1% She also reported that the campus' first time appeal to faculty and 
staff resulted in total pledges of $48,000 with $40,000 being actually received. There were also first 
time efforts to secure sizable donations from individuals which were also very successful with three 
major gifts at the $25,000 level and 25 gifts at the $1,000 (+) level. 

In concluding her remarks, she expressed the campus' gratitude to the Board for its 
confidence in support of the campus' plans and asked Al Brill, Director of Development to provide 
an overview of the FY91 proposal. 

Vice Chancellor Sherman also expressed the Worcester campus' gratitude and provided an 
overview of what has occurred. Ann Beaulieu indicated that the plan for next year was what had 
been proposed for FY90. In FY90 the campus merged the office of Alumni Affairs and Development 
allowing for more efficient and effective solicitation of grateful patients and alumni. Also, the 
computer hardware and software was upgraded. 

With regard to projected revenue for FY90, $711,093 was proposed and the campus raised 
$774,929, exceeding the goal by 8.98%. 



The Committee raised a concern about the projected revenue versus projected expenses for 
FY91 which equaled $1.20 spent for every dollar brought in. The Committee asked that the campus 
review its projections in terms of what it expects to raise as revenue using the format utilized by the 
Boston campus and suggested a delay in hiring for the proposed new positions. 

Vice Chancellor Dan Melley indicated that in the last two months, the Amherst campus 
has been working on a way to integrate Public Relations and Alumni Development. He reported 
that the campus has received a matching gift to the Guiness gift of $250,000 from Amoco Foundation 
for the Engineering Student Center and reported on recent media developments and distributed a 
package of recent press clippings. 

John Raimo spoke on the expenditures for FY90 which related to the Science and Engineering 
Campaign. Currently the only two projects on schedule are the Engineering Research Facility under 
construction and the Engineering Student Center. The campus then presented a revised campaign 
budget of $75,505 for FY91, $56,896 for FY92 and added a fourth year with estimated expenditures of 
$86,000. 

John Raimo then gave an overview of total private support and a new proposal to enhance 
private support from individuals. During the last five years the campus' growth in corporate, 
foundation and individual private support has experienced a 60.3% increase. During the same 
period, contributions from individual donors while growing substantially, continue to represent 
approximately 27% of the total given to the University. The new proposal seeks funding to enhance 
work in Major Giving, Leadership Giving and Annual Giving. Also included is support to expand 
alumni activities in the areas of Alumni and Parent Communications, and Club Development. 

Chair Baker noted that the original development proposals anticipated funding for three 
years and that during years two and three the Committee expected requests for funding would 
decrease and programs become self-sufficient. The campus asked that the revised proposal be 
deferred until the October meeting and that the Committee consider only the funds for the FY91 
Science and Engineering Campaign. It was moved, seconded and 

VOTED : To recommend to the Committee on Budget and Financial 

Affairs that the Board expend the following amounts of trustee 
reserve in FY91 for the purposes of implementing the 
development proposals contained in Doc. T89-059A: 

University of Massachusetts at Amherst $ 75,506 

(Science & Engineering Campaign) 

University of Massachusetts at Boston $ 226,906 

$302,412

Chair Baker expressed her thanks to G/R Public Relations for all of their efforts 
during a difficult year. 

Vice Chancellor Sherman then presented the Worcester campus Development 
Proposal for FY91. The proposal described the role of the development office, the redefined 
mission of the Medical Center, the recent accomplishments and the future plans and 
budgetary and staffing needs.

meeting included an examination of the fiscal situation on the affirmative action programs at each 
campus. 

Chancellor Penney pointed out that in terms of enrollment, the campus has had a good year. 
The proportion of students who are minorities (17.7%) continues to increase. Minority freshman were 
at an all time high of 25% and minority transfers were also high at 18%. Minorty graduate 
students also increased by 9%. Turning to the faculty statistics, she said 13.9% are minority and the 
percentage of those who are women has also risen from 33.3% to 35.1%. Some of the campus efforts 
have included the establishment of an Affirmative Action Task Force, consisting of faculty and 
staff, which will be report to the Chancellor in March on other areas which affirmative action can 
be accomplished. There is also a Diversity project underway, headed by Estelle Dish, of the 
Mauricio Gaston Institute for Latino Community Development and Public Policy and the 
establishment of a nursing transfer program with Roxbury Community College. 

Chancellor Penney also spoke about the reversions in the state appropriation and subsequent 
loss of faculty and reduction in funds needed for recruitment. She then asked Ms. Gant to speak 
about the areas on campus which have been identified as needing further affirmative action. Those 
areas include: the need for additional funds to be allocated to departments for faculty recruitment, 
a campus based program which will take women and minorities and provide them which senior 
administrative experience, the question of maternity and paternity leave, and the Policy Against 
Intolerance. 

Vice President Tribble, reporting for the President's Office, indicated that despite seventeen 
vacancies, the minority representation has been fairly stable at approximately 7% of the workforce. 

Mr. James Wells, the Director of Affirmative Action, indicated that the minority 
representation at the Worcester campus is at 9%. The black representation of medical students is 
5%. The problem area both with respect to minorities and women is in the upper level positions. In 
terms of specific campus activities, there is a twenty-three member affirmative action committee 



'(

improve affirmative action recruitment and indicated this would be an item for the next meeting. 

Candace McCloy, Human Resources Specialist, reported on the efforts to evaluate campus 
needs and obtain an affirmative action software system which will facilitate the production of 
statistical information necessary to prepare, update, and monitor affirmative action plans. 

Associate Vice President Tribble then updated the Committee on the steps taken to 
implement and disseminate on the campuses the Policy Against Intolerance adopted by the Board of 
Trustees at its October meeting. The Affirmative Action directors spoke of the campus efforts in this 
regard.

Trustee Reed, Chair, called the meeting to order at 12:07. Associate Vice President 
Tribble indicated that the first item, Hi gher Education Staff Information Surveys, for 
Boston and Worcester were submitted for information as a follow-up to discussions at the 
March 15th meeting. 

Due to an emergency, Ms. Chambrey, Acting Director of Affirmative Action at the 
Amherst campus was not available to discuss the analysis of Amherst's EE06 report, and 
discussion of the item was tabled until the next meeting. 

Ms. Gant then spoke to the Boston campus FIVE POINT PLAN and specifically the 
areas identified within that plan which would require funding. These targeted areas 
include Faculty Recruitment, Training and Legal/Consulting Fees associated with the Policy 
Against Intolerance, Professional Development/Leadership Training and the Internal 
Fellows Program. 

The Progress Report on Affirmative Action from the Boston campus was briefly 
discussed. The report is an appraisal of the campus' affirmative action program with 
particular attention to the effect of the budget reductions and layoffs on affirmative action. 
It was noted that despite the problems the campus has faced, there has not been an adverse 
impact on affirmative action. Trustee Reed indicated that the situation bears watching 
since financial constraints will limit recruiting. 

With regard to the Committee's request for funding proposals for affirmative action, 
Chancellor Laster mentioned the campus is preparing to establish a group to report on the 
current status and how to improve in areas related to recruitment of students and faculty at 
the three schools as well as the House Officers' Training Program. 

Chair Reed indicated her desire to bring all three campus requests to the Committee on 
Budget and Financial Affairs. 

Jim Wells then reported on the Reallocation Program which the Worcester campus 
implemented in November, 1989 as a result of the budget situation. The program did not 



% 



have an adverse impact on any protected groups. It was pointed out that future programs 
may present problems related to age and gender. Mr. Wells outlined the recommendations 
for future reallocation programs: 

• Since nearly 45% of the reallocated employees are age 40 and over, the Medical 
Center should actively pursue offering, in the future, an early retirement option for eligible 
workers; 

• The Medical Center should further assess older employees, especially women who 
are in shrinking or declining job categories, for possible retraining into high demand job 
categories; 

• To the extent possible, more time should be allotted for the complex process of 
matching the affected individuals to the identified new job; this is especially critical for 
employees having high seniority; 

• To the extent possible, the EEO Office, working in conjunction with our Informational 
Resources Department, should be given ample time to conduct prospective statistical analysis 
for potential adverse impact problems; 

• Given the societal aging workforce, the campus should make available to the 
workforce a range of sessions dealing with retirement planning. 

The Committee commended the campus on the excellent report. 

The Committee also discussed the need to develop a program to keep in Massachusetts 
minority students and to encourage them to attend our public institutions. 

At 12:45 p.m., Chair Reed asked for a motion to go into executive session to discuss 
collective bargaining and announced the Committee would not reconvene in open session. On 
roll call, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED: To enter executive session. 

At 1:10 p.m., the Committee meeting adjourned.

Trustee Reed, Chair, called the meeting to order at 11:15 a.m. The first item on 
the agenda was the Implementation of the Affirmative Action Packag e. Associate Vice 
President Tribble reported that it is proceeding as planned. A University- wide advisory 
committee has been set up and each campus has it's own implementation committee. The 
campus representatives have meet with the vendor, Criterion, Inc. of Irving Texas and the 
expected completion date for the project is January 30, 1991. 

The next item on the agenda was Tracking of Recent Incidents of Ethnic or Racial 
Harrassment . Each of the campus representatives reported on the campus mechanism used to 
report incidents. The Committee asked that this be an informational agenda item again for 
the December 4th meeting. 

Chair Reed reported on discussions with the President concerning the Special One- 
Time Projects to assist the campuses in implementing their Affirmative Action programs. 
The campus requests will be reviewed by the Chancellors and considered for funding from 
campus Trust Fund Interest Allocation. The Committee's role will be to make 
recommendations to the Chancellor of progress and get feedback on the programs funded. 

Ms. Gant outlined the impact of the Boston campus' proposal, which is to address 
some of the priority issues on campus, in particular, issues of faculty recruitment. She 
reported that if the current budget situation continues, with minorities and women not being 
hired, loss of junior faculty due to non-competitive salaries, and the overall fiscal climate, 
there will be a substantial erosion of the affirmative action profile. The proposal seeks 
funding to aggressively recruit faculty. 

The other two areas identified were design and implementation of the Policy 
Against Intolerance and retention of Faculty and Staff through professional development. 

Trustee Reed reported that in recent conversations with Chancellor Penney, it was 
recommended that in light of the budget situation the Policy Against Intolerance and 
develop components be funded. Further, she suggested that the workshop for the Policy 



Against Intolerance be shared by all campuses both in terms of the expense and the 
workshop. 

General Counsel Searson pointed out that he would like to be apprised of any out- 
side legal consultants to be selected prior to the approval of their contract, in accordance 
with trustee policy. 

With regard to the faculty recruitment component, its importance was recognized 
but because of the fiscal situation could not be funded. Ms. Gant suggested there might be 
alternatives which would reduce the cost. It was suggested that the Committee would 
review any additional material. 

Mr. Wells reported that a Medical Center wide Committee process was in place 
and, he will report on its recommendations and the associated budget in December. 

The Amherst campus recommendation was for the campus to fund and host the 
Northeast Regional Conference on the Association of American Cultures. This organization 
is the only national organization which includes Asians, Native Americans, African 
Americans and Hispanics. 

Dr. Tillis also gave a brief presentation about the Special Opportunity Fund at 
the Amherst campus. The fund reactivated in 1987 is a commitment from the chief executive 
officers to set aside funds to recruit minority and women faculty in under represented areas. 

The Committee then discussed agenda items for upcoming meetings. In addition to 
agenda items previously discussed, the following items will be on the December agenda: 

-FY91 Budget Impact on Affirmative Action—UM/ Amherst, 
UM/Boston and UM/Worcester 

-Impact of Tuition and Fee increases on minority students 

-Role of Umass Medical Center in the Community.
